I run E-Tec because Evinrude's exclusive 2 stroke outboards deliver more power, less emissions, better fuel economy, zero maintenance for three years and turn key winterization. It doesn't get any better than that!!
If the deal goes through my new 2014 Princecraft Xpedition will be rigged with a 115 Hp E Tec and a 9.9 Hp Evinrude kicker with full controls . My Sponsor Dealer Lake County Water Sports said the same thing as you say. I'm a Captain Guide in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin and fish through out the year. I spend time on the rivers during the winter. He said E Tec motors were built for guys like me with the self winterizing, low fuel comsumption and no maintenance so I figure its the perfect fit to go with MinnKota I Pilot trolling motor and HumminBird Electronics . Really looking forward to some Great times on the water with lower expenses and less worries.
