  • 1999 GS 180 O/B: is it worth it to repower it?

    Hello all,
    ​The outboard (Merc 150 efi 2-stroke) needs about $2100 in repairs (flywheel, stator, something I can't think of + labor) and I'm not going to put that amount of $$ into an 18-year old motor, especially since my boat guy is very sure the magnet that broke off the flywheel sent filings into the motor.

    ​That being the case, is it worth spending $12k + on a new 115 hp 4-stroke and putting it on an 18-year old boat? Given the fact that I'm never going to buy second-hand marine anything again, this seems to be the least expensive way to get back out on the water. Any advice? Thanks.
