Hey folks, I have my eye on a little 16' boat with a 115hp Evinrude. I have no experience with these motors, have had Merc and Yammy my entire life. It is a 1997 and from what I can tell the problems with the FICHT models began in 1998 but i'm not totally sure. Does anyone have experience with this vintage Evinrude (Johnson?) motor? I have heard the VRO labelled models where many people take out the VRO and premix. But again, this motor doesn't have either a VRO label nor a FICHT labe, no is it an "Ocean Pro". It looks like this Lastly, any mechanics in the lowermainland that you know of that service these things? Between the expected reliability and access to service, this will drive my buying decision. Lake trial will happen this Tuesday... The boat and motor are in very good visual condition, turned over instantly. Original owner's manuals for the boat/motor package bill of sale etc are in place. And I get overall good vibes from the seller, i'm just hung up on the Evinrude part of the equation. Thanks in advance.
