I'm gonna stick with a 15hp rather than a 9.8. As nice as the Tohatsus look i think i'd be wondering what a 15hp was like all the time if I bought one.
I can now probably stretch to £700, and the potential for a road trip to the south coast is there. So if anyone has anything let me know!
The Tohatsu 9.9 was a restricted 15Hp !! I removed the restrictor, so although it says 9.9 on the cover, it is actually a 15Hp.
Servicing and refit of tiller is very simple, if you don't want it, I will be doing the work myself, and placing on ebay once complete.
