As you can probably tell from my screen name, I am a Briggs fan. In fact I have been a Briggs Master Service Technician for the past 7 yrs. For the money you will not find a better 4-stroke outboard, period. Service and parts are available from any Briggs authorized dealer, currently 30,000 in the U.S. The Briggs outboard uses a basic Briggs lawnmower engine and is air cooled. As you know you don't have to mix oil with the gas. Briggs is a pioneer in the small engine industry and they have taken there experience and produced a great product. GO FOR IT!!
Now Now Tron now you are talking bad about the company I work for.
Ok we don't make the outboards but we only make the smaller rocket type motor's for the push mower's and pressure washers and anything else below the 5 h.p. range now we a re limited to making 10,200 a day instead of the 16,000 we used to make.

ftlupton where are you from do you know anyone that works at a Brigg's plant if so then they can buy cheaper and also if they have any reconditioned ones then they are real cheap most of the time that is stuff sent back because of cosmetic reason's but it could include other things also.
Thanks all of you. Tron, I wish I could live around the ocean and fish like you do, I am envious. I live in Colorado and we have smaller water so I just use small boats. Think I will try the Briggs.
