Looking at putting a 75 on and want some input from users. Its going on a 16.5 deep V. I hear the 75 actually puts out about 80.

Any Optimax info would be appreciated.

Really good on gas for a 2-stroke. I did see one break on the first day it ever hit the water.

I've got a 200 running on my's been a great motor for me. You have to treat 'em right but in return, they'll treat you right too...

Good luck and good fishing!

Why would you waste your money on a Mercury, you need a Johnson. :wink:

don't have the Optimax :sad: but any motor with mercury on it it's worth every penny!
