"We're happy to provide more engine options to our customers, and the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines are a fantastic addition to our boat selection," said Rich Munoz, owner of Pompano Beach, Florida's Boat Kings. "We already have plans to rig the Starcraft Tri-toon and Crossover boats as well as Striper Boats with Evinrude E-TEC G2 power.
