    Have both.

    They both serve a purpose IMHO.

    I like the 4-stroke for long runs I make (fuel mileage), smooth operation, whisper quiet.

    I like the 2-stroke for light setup, ease of troubleshoot/repair/maintenance.

    Am always concerned I will screw up and add oil to the 4-stroke gas, or worse yet, no oil to the 2-stroke gas.

    But...different "Strokes" for different folks (you gotta like that one) :)

    2 strokes are all it takes for people that can't wait,
    4 strokes are for those that like to have the fun last a little longer...

    All joking aside, I agree they both serve a purpose... some boats and their use lend themselves to 4 strokes, some don't.

    When I go fishing, it looks like a controlled burn drifting across the water.

    My 1974 15hp Evinrude gets it done!
