thanks all....
have to say am leaning towards the Tohatsu, price difference with the fuel and accomodation plus fitting would be the price of a good aux motor for the boat.
Evinrude prices go up on 1st October, and Tohatsu finish their boat show offers then, so have anther 24 hours to decide.

Are those like a DFS/MFI sale? i.e. you'll be able to get virtually identical deal next week - and its a ruse by the sales guy to pressure you to make a decision? Certainly for anyone who has one in stock already paid for, i'd think there would be scope to negotiate.

1st service is 3 years or 300 hours. & then it's only plugs, impeller, fuel filter & gear oil. AND you can drive it like you stole it, straight out of the box.

Any reason for the Quicksilver? You can get 25 litres of Morris 2-stroke TCW3 for 98.52 plus vat.
