    Voted 4 stroke.
    I’ve had inboards and 2 strokes but my Verados were unbeatable.
    I don’t always understand technology but generally, I’ll accept it and move with the times.

    All the O/B's I have burn oil. One day I may try one of those oogly, overpriced, overcomplicated, modern miracles that so many people love. But, not today!

    I think it depends on the application, I like trouble free/jump in and go/low maintenance, outboards win that battle. If it is a boat I’m bringing family and friends on, I like quiet power so the back seat area is pleasant, that makes the new V8 four strokes attractive except for the price.

    2 stroke outboard, or diesel straight inboard or diesel straight shaft surface drive.

    I/O they make good artificial reefs.
    ANTI40​It's just an idea.

    Depends on the day. I adore my big chonkey V8 with headers, but I'm excited about owning a 2 stroke OB as well. I also have like 9 cars tho so I can't pick favorites of any of this type of thing.

    Whoever gave me a reputation comment "you're a ****ing loser" for my comment above, I just want you to know I have a giant dick. I did the math and it's in the upper end of the spectrum, and if statistics are not lying, it's like a dick that is 1 in 10,000+ people in terms of length and girth.

    Basically, call me whatever names you want, my dick is bigger than yours so I don't care what some tiny dicked loser who has to post anonymous insults thinks.

    The children love reputation comments, hide and seek name calling, let Greg know, he said he was going to disable that stupid feature, the children at work.

    I look forward to seeing the results from this but in a way this is like asking a vintage Chris Craft forum if they prefer wood or fiberglass boats. The votes that count most are the ones people make with their wallets and with the huge surge in 4 stroke outboards and them being put on pretty much everything I think that answers the question for me.
