Yes, they are made by Suzuki and are actually very good, especially for the money. Sort of a cheap sounding name so I can understand the initial concern.

The Suzuki Spirit has already been nailed down.

I believe the Force motors are what used to be Chrysler boat motors.

In the force motors later years they were owned by mercury. They had a chrysler engine with a mercury lower unit.

We have a 25hp Spirit. Hard to get parts. I had to go to Bismarck. It is not running now and we replaced it. So, if anyone needs one for parts, we can get rid of it.I don't remember what went wrong at the end. We did get twenty years or so of use out of it.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
