Yea . Im here in Wisconsin only ever see freshwater stuff around here. Theres a 175hp evinrude etec for 600 at dealer. But they say it needs injectors which are nlaGiven that is most likely a fresh water motor... maybe. If you plan on keeping it to use for years and it is a clean engine then yes. But the only way you will ever see a return on the investment is from use!
