Thomas Crawford
In Tasmania Art is not commonly used when referring to bait fishing, but this form of fishing really is an artform.

50 Years of the Ultimate Four-Stroke

 

2014 is a milestone year for Honda, with the company celebrating the 50th anniversary of the very first Honda four-stroke outboard engine, the GB30. A modest 4hp engine, it represented the noble ambitions of Honda’s founder, Soichiro Honda, to manufacture only four-stroke engines for the benefit of the environment and generations to come.

Now, with a range that stretches from the BF2.3 to the mighty BF250 – and includes the latest additions, the BF80 & BF100 – Honda Marine continues to be a leader in four-stroke outboard engine technology.

“Honda has to make environmentally-friendly products; therefore we must build four-stroke outboards,” Mr Honda said in 1964. “I don’t care if everyone is making two-stroke outboards, Honda must make four-stroke outboards.”
