Briggs & Stratton

  1. Does anyone own one of the Briggs & Stratton 5 hp outboards? I own one and have had nothing but trouble with it. Not to slam B & S but I purchased one of the first off the assembly line...many engineering improvements have been made since "my" model. I'm curious if anyone has had similiar experiences or if the improvements made much of a difference.
     
  2. My dad got one a few weeks ago and used it once and took it back. He said the vibrations were so bad he could hardly hold onto it. It said no returns on the package but he got it from Bass Pro and they took it back with no questions.
