When my brother first decided that he wanted a new outboard motor, he decided to look for one with better performance and ability than the one that he had at the moment. His older motor was a hand-me-down from one of our friends so it wasn’t one that ran particularly well. Almost any motor that my brother bought would have been better than that one.
In the end, my brother chose an Optimax outboard motor because he liked how efficient these motors were. He has enjoyed the motor ever since he decided to get it for his boat because of the amount of power he can get from it. The motor works perfectly for his purposes and has always been very efficient as long as he always puts Mercury Optimax oil in it on a regular basis.
