2-stroke or 4-stroke, new or used, economy or performance, simplicity or refinement.........

Tell us a bit more about what you want from it, your budget, etc.

It wasn't clear whether you wanted something basic, which you could maintain and service yourself, or alternatively, something having modern technology, eg Evinrude e-tec.

If you're looking for a new 4-stroke, then Yamaha have a very good reputation, but Suzuki and Mercury/Mariner also make decent 4-strokes. What about servicing - think about which dealers are available/convenient to you.

well, here in croatia servicing is miserable...for some part you need to wait couple months...
i dont know which engine to buy...honda bf40, yamaha f40bets, suzuki df40. mercury is very expensive so i exclude him. evinrude is also expensive. honda now have rebates so i can get her most cheapest and i know she's good because port hvar have one who works every day about 5-6h and this is her 6 sesson. yamaha is little bit expensive but yamaha has less ccm (747ccm - yamaha, 808ccm - honda) suzuki i dont know how is he and i'm still waiting for suzuki dealer offer...and i' waiting rib of 3.8m who can max 40ps and honda is 93kg and suzuki 107kg....
too complicated...

Suzuki DF40 is 814cc.
Don't think you'll go wrong with any of those.

I don't think it is complicated! on a small rib that size you must be careful of weight! so the lkighter engine must be considered. In this country Honda have a 5 year warranty period is that so in Croatia.

I don't much like Honda's but they are very reliable

Also tohatsu 2 strokes are really rugged

i would like suzuki but i'm scarred that he'll be too heavy...
one more thing. honda now make bf40 and bf50 with carburetors so i'm thinking would she start making them with EFI like bf75/90. so than i can get these with carburetors much cheaply. and these with carburetors waste (spend) 4-5 l per hour...

I just looked at the '05 brochure - the Suz 40 appears to be a de- rated 50, (same CC, same weight, differnent max RPM) so will be heavy for the power.

Once an engine is running fast, the fuel it drinks will be very similar whether EFI or carb. If you spend alot of time at idle (e.g. rescue boat) then yes, EFI will probably drink less.
