I had one of those sitting in my shed for years, unused for at least 4 years, tried it on Sunday and it started second pull with the old fuel, someone saw it and bought it off me there and then

I use the 2.2 for a 2.8mtr tender and it's fine but a bit noisy because it has no water jacket.

Edit: Oops, I see the 2.2 is now a 2.3hp
I think the next one up the range is teh 5 hp and its water cooled adn a good bit bigger, also has gears which teh 2.3 does not.
The 2.3 is very light and drives my Walker bay RID (heavier) along just under plane with one up. Nice little motor, it uses the honda 50 engine and clutch.

Sounds like we need to run a Seagull Grand Prix at the next Priory Bay BBQ

Hi Brian
I have a new Honda 2.3 air cooled outboard for my tender. Performane is ok, but its a bit of a noisy bu**er. We were sitting in the Mermaid in Herm and i could hear my son whizzing round in the harbour!!
