When I first had to buy an outboard motor to put on the boat that I was going to use to go fishing, I worried about making sure that this kind of a motor would continue working for a long time. I knew that the boat was easy enough to maintain, but the motor itself was far more challenging. I worried a lot about keeping a motor in good shape.
I ended up buying a simple Yamaha outboard that would be easy enough to hook up to the back of my boat. I worried about the outboard, but as long as I keep using Yamalube 2-M the boat seems to survive fishing trips with ease. I am so glad that I can keep the motor maintained without putting in too much work on maintenance.
