Don't rule out the Suzy DF140 - it weighs less than the DF115 and has a little more ooomph. It also works very well on the back of a Humber Destroyer 6m too

our local dealer is agent for mercury, suzuki. and said that both the suzi 4 stroke, and mercury optimax are both well proven engines, with good dealer feedback, as far as minimal waranty problems. after having the 140 suzuki on
my last boat i can agree with him. great engine. so when i was looking for my new engine i followed his and many ribnet members advise and went for the
optimax. The main difference for me is the shear power difference between the two, from standing start right through to top end performance. added to the fact of price compared to the suzi. much easier to get a good deal out
of mercury.Only downside if you can call it that is the v6 is a little growlier
compared to the quietness of the suzi.but the smile it puts on your face is reward enough when you hit the throttle
So im with jono. die hard 4 stoker now fully converted to opti power. and the
good thing is it compares with the suzi on fuel. and the sub 135 optis are allot
quieter.
