I believe there’s a business to be had if you “remanufactured” old school 2 strokes.

Matter of fact, I bought a couple of motors on a recent Fla trip.

I know those Yammis, they are bullet proof.
Copied OMC and then built new, Japanese electronics for them.
As the Japs are famous for doing.

IMO, there’s a bunch of guys that are now priced out of the market for a new 225 for their bass boat.
If you could sell re-mans w/an iron clad warranty for 1/2 that……..

Wildman, I almost bought a 31’ Sonic w/twin V-8 JohnRudes yrs ago just for that reason.

Carburetor engine with NO oil injection. Old school or old fashioned??

Current ad on Yamaha Thailand website……..
(That’s about 12,500 USD)

Yes the Sonics are a great boat for the mid west where you stay on them a lot. Lots of room in the cabins and tall.

I know this started as a DONZI Outboard thing but thought I would add some other conversions.

Were you able to do the run around longboat key? We got shut down by the fog and hung out at Mar Vista.

Yes we went around and Pete got some good pictures of us. Who are you, we ended up there on the other side of the DONZI. That is JJ going across the Phantom.

@ hoodoo and Wildman, I’m not bothered at all, talk about anything. I like to see pics of your boats and hear your stories. The Donzi thing has probably run it’s course anyway……..🙂
