Buy a Japanese motor if buying a two stroke or even a four stroke. That's just my opinion of course.
By the way, you don't need a Bass boat to catch Bass. I have a 14' Westcoaster with a Honda 15 on it that I use for all my fishing adventures. Even Salmon fishing in the ocean, but must keep an eye on the weather.
Total cost for my project boat, around $2k. $500 for the motor + $400 to rebuild, $450 for the boat + $300 to refurbish, $200 for the trailer, the rest spent on odds and ends.
Here's a picture during during remodel.
