Without knowing that actual engine the 3 cylinder Mercury/Mariner range from 1995-2006 are decent motors. Plenty of them about for spares. It's the best engine you've mentioned so far but like I said each engine is only as good as its owner!!!

Don't know how your mechanical knowledge is, but one thing I found trying to PT both a Yam and a Merc is that at a high level, there is a statistically high chance the leg / gearbox etc will be shared with every lump up to abut 90Hp. This means that if you donlt mind a bit of retro fitting, more often thwan not you can remove the "manual tilt assist ram" and replace it with a PT unit from a gubbed other engine.

That makes it sound easy, and the actual swapping of components is. It's working out what bits you are looking for is the pain in the @rse. (although if you find a yam it's a dawdle as almost anything between 50 -90 seems to use the same midsection).
