  Modern two-stokes do quite well
  Posted by: guideboatguy on Mar-31-13 12:08 AM (EST)

Actually, Mercury two-stroke outboards way back in the 70s could be used for trolling at idle all day long with no problems whatsoever, and I suspect Johnson/Evinrude were the same but I didn't hear much about people trolling with them. I guess by "modern" two-stroke motors, I'm referring to everything but the primitive old models that burned 25:1 mixtures. The "really modern" ones of today with electronically controlled oil proportioning should be even better. I would still expect four-stroke motors to be the best for trolling, even though the days of two-stroke motors performing poorly after long periods of idle have been gone for a long time.
