My dad had a Tohatsu 50hp 2 stroke on his sailing boat, he decided to swap it for the carbed 4 stroke 50hp Honda.

On the plus side its almost silent at tickover and its a lot less smokey, but on the down side it can struggle to get the boat on the plane and he feels that he uses the same amount of fuel because he has to work the Honda harder.

Only takes one endorsement to give the OP the backing he was looking for ;-)

At least the '06 Honda is likely to be the EFI model (check the cowling OP as I think '06 was the change over year)

It never fails to raise a wry smile when someone asks for "Advice or thoughts" on such & such. When what they really mean is "I've made my mind up & I want someone to endorse/backup/agree" with the dubious decision I've made 'cos it looks good & I've got money burning a hole in my pocket.

Spot on! and 99.8 % of the audience agree.

Now this is not true, submarine doors can possibly leak, think more rear end of a Duck, and you'll be on the right track.
