I stand corrected….I went back thru my notes and my last 9.9hp I bought from https://www.powerequipmentdirect.com/outdoor/outboard-motors.htmlHow long did it take for delivery? Lift or no lift?
Grabbed the last Highfield 310CL in arctic gray from A&S boats in Connecticut. I’ll be headed to get it in the next month or so, they said they’ll hold it for us as long as we need. Really nice group of people
looking forward to next year with this new boat. Hurley h2o is also on the way. I’m going to stick with our old 9.9 at least for the beginning of the season but plan on going to a 20hp 4 stroke, probably a tohatsu

I looked at the Tohatsu, but ultimately went with the 20 Suzuki for a number of reasons but the ability to get a white engine and a fantastic dealer near by made the choice easier. Who thought that making motors black was a good idea? Water spots drive me crazy.
I have been super happy with the Zuk!
Bought mine from Coral Gables Yacht Sales in Holland Mi.where has everyone bought their highfields? Has to be US based (apparently theres a 25% import tax from Canada on them rght now?), anything within driving distance of western NY is preferred.
So far I've spoken to a dealer in Chicago but they want $675 to ship a 310CL to us and its a 10hr drive from me. There is a dealer in Ohio that's only about 5hrs but I haven't heard back from them yet. I have an enclosed trailer large enough to get it home so I'd really prefer to go get it
A couple questions on the Highfield Sport 360 is the 20Hp motor plenty enough? And how many of you buy them new?
And do you really need a trailer?
Looking around if I find a used center console for sale I feel it is over priced for the condition it is in plus I rarely find any aluminum ones for sale and I really want to go with the aluminum RIB to keep weight down.
