I have a 2016 Merc 90 CT, best engine I have ever owned.  I have it bluetooth to my phone and the app gives me all the instant readouts I don't need but like to look at as well as storing the maintenance and prompting at the right intervals.  Great power, easy start, runs like perfect.

I don't think they make a 70 though, looks like they jump from 60 to 75.

Honestly, I think the big names probably all make great engines today.

Yeah, and I think 75 is just a detuned 90 so the weight to HP ratio isn’t great. At least a few years ago when I last looked for an engine in that range the Yamaha was the only one that filled the “relatively light” 70 HP niche. Everything else was a heavy detuned 90. And at that point you might as well just go with a 90.

I agree all the big brands make good outboards now. I shop based on weight rather than brand loyalty these days.

Not sure about the grey ones, but the black 90 is the same block and cowling size as the 115.  Different crank, computer and a few other things, but same general size and weight.

Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.
