Hello every one . Its nice to have found such an great forum. I was trying to decide between the regular 60 and the 60 HO. I ended up ordering a Etec 60 HO on recommendation of my Dealer. Does any one out there have the 60 HO? Could please give me your opinion on it ? Thanks in advance.
Your Evinrude E-TEC 60 HO model is basically a detuned tried-and-true 75-90 HP that has been in production since 2003. With ancestry like that, you have a well engineered reliable outboard with great low-end torque and economical to operate.
