Default New Toon

OK, so I wasn't so happy with the last pontoon and ended up selling it last week. It was an older one so it had the smaller pontoons and I can't how many times I was splashed while cruising around. I shopped around, checked out new and used boats and found one that was exactly what I wanted/needed that was brand new. It is a 22' Avalon with a 3-4 foot deck up front, rear swim ladder and huge double sun deck. I opted for the biggest engine allowed and picked a Mercury 115 EFI 4-stroke for it. The one reason I went new instead of slightly used is the warranty. I get a 5 year warranty on the engine, a lifetime warranty on the toons, deck and carpet, 5 years on the seats and canvas, and 1 year "bumper to bumper" on everything. It should be ready by the end of the week so I'll post pics once it is home. Let me know when you want to go hang on the water Bryan... or any of you fuckers I know that are in my area.

LOL.... Well, it was either spend $15k and not get one or spend $20k and get one. You tell me which is "smarter"? I didn't pay for the warranties.

That is all they offered.... I wanted a Yamaha since they are the industry leader for outboards.

Yamaha industry leader in outboards?

I know Evinrude has been good the last few years with their EFI two-strokes... Also Honda makes a great outboard engine. I don't see too many yamis out on the lakes up here and there are some nice boats up around here. I still see quite a few Johnsons though...

Yep, Yamaha designed the powerhead and held (or still does) the patent for the powerhead on the 4-strokes. I can't talk about the 2-strokes but I have a friend who is a Sweetwater dealer and this is what he said. I researched this on a few forums and everyone says the Yami is the best outboard. Maybe industry leader is too much but they are supposedly one of the best.

BRP makes the E-tec engine for Evinrude. I almost bought a toon with a 90hp Etec but really wanted the 4-stroke. The Etec has a feature where it winterizes it self....

It will be paid off within 3 years, less than a year after all my other debt is paid off. Why should I settle for second best when what I want was obtainable.
