Haven't got one but.........I used to have one-nice engines. Then got myself a 130 Honda.
I expect you know that the 90hp is the "same" engine? Why not go for that as an alternate?
PS When you get one remember to move as much other kit forward, the engine is quite heavy esp. on a small boat.

Cheers folks, keep the ears to the ground. Yes I would love the 90 (same weight!!) but can't go above the 85 on the plate. A yamaha 80 would suit me also but unlikely to be available at the right price. Are the suzuki 4 strokes working out ok ?

Mark, sorry for the history lesson but it might be of interest to you.

Osprey were asked to put a 115 Suzuki on the back of a Sparrowhawk in late 92. They refused saying you will kill yourself or break the boat. Customer insisted so they eventually bowed to the customers request and did it. Six months later the customer hadn't broken the boat or himself so Osprey upped the plate limit to 115 hp for all subsequent Sparrowhawks.

Pete
