Honda or Yamaha?
My RIB at the moment (Humber 5m Assault) has a 1996 Yamaha 50HP 4 stroke high thrust edition, I am wondering if it is worth selling that and upgrading to a 2005 Honda 90HP.
One of the reasons for doing this is that with 6 adults in the boat (out of the maximum of 10), it only just manages to get onto the plain with quite a lot of trimming involved.
I have heard from people at my sailing club that the Hondas are much more difficult and expensive to maintain which may be a problem because my dealer is very fussy about the type of outboard you bring for him to sort out.
Besides would I see any noticeable differences and what would be an acceptable price to pay for one?
