Introduction

Choosing Outboard Boats for Offshore Boating

Buyers' Guide to Outboard Boats is totally dedicated to blue water type outboard boats, not jet boats, I/O's, pontoon boats, bass boats or mega yachts. You won't be just reading part of it and disregarding the rest. Or paying for something that is irrelevant. 

What I mean by "blue water" type boats are boats that are sea worthy for heading out into larger bodies of water, not just small lakes and protected bays, etc. - Author
