Here's some customer feedback...

"I just picked up an ELite yesterday. Got it for ease of use by my wife/kid and friends who borrow my dingy. Also for the incredible storage factor this will fit in a locker without spilling fuel or oil and behind the seat of my truck. I am impressed with the fit and finish of the controls on the mount and the outboard itself. It feels sturdy and fine details like the built in tiller extension work well. It balances and carries easily as advertised."
