Honda 115

Just been offered a Honda 115 circa 1999. Anyone with info on this outboard? What do you think about an installation on the back of a BWM deepsea 17?

Its quite a heavy engine, being the same weight as the 130 version.

The long shaft is 229kg (dry weight) and the normal shaft is slightly lighter at 225kg. Thats the same as a Opti 225, thats very heavy for a 115!!

A 115 Merc fourstroke weighs only 175 kg.

Thanks Neal!
Yeh I know its heavy, but it is offered at an attractive price. I was more concerned about the badged 115hp not being 115hp, just something I heard one day! If I was offered a 115 Yam I'd say yes please.

If you go for it remember to move the axle on your trailer back a few inches first. Otherwise, you'll fit the new engine go round to the tow hitch to move the boat slightly and find the front of the trailer is so light it takes you by surprise, overbalances and catches you under the chin on its way up.
Still got the scar.
