mine is a 115 etech l, I can get 33 on a glass lake.. I can troll with mine also, it's got a trolling feature, my only issue is I wish it was a 150 or 175 and the $50 a gallon etech oil 

I’ve heard it’s not good to troll with a 2 stroke. I’ve had lots of them over the years and fouling the plugs has always been an issue. I still run my 90 Yamaha and have to change out or clean the plugs after a few days of trolling. They do not like to go slow. Did they fix that with the BRP’s?

Thats about what my buddies boat did with his Merc 115. His new Merc 150 will do 43 now. My yamaha F200 will do 49 with 2 guys and full tank, 45 with 4 guys, flat lake of course. I know my buddy is much happier with his upgrade, especially getting out of the hole. My first boat was underpowered and was a dog. I wasnt going to make the mistake again which is why I maxed out the HP on my new one.

I hope so too, Mike. Almost identical to yours. Offer is on the table. A little more than I wanted to spend, and not a 4 stroke, but it sounds like he’s taken pretty good care of it and is willing to deliver, so we’ll see. What auto pilot are you running? Did you have it installed, or did it come on the boat?
