Four stroke is future proof,and no smelly clothes better mpg but heavier,probably more suited to trailered boat due to handling complications.

You didn't think much of having a 40hp on the back then.

Outboard for Honwave T40 AE

Well I have managed to pick myself up a 2011 Honda 20hp 4 stroke with less than 10 hours for 1800. It's in like new condition and only had one owner nice new. Very delighted!

That looks nice! hasn't even got any chips on the prop! Good find!
Just be careful lifting the thing. Honda's are the heaviest you could have bought!
--edit--
Actually, just checked against the Mariners and the Honda you've got is 47KG dry, the Mariner is 52KG, which is surprising.
You're definitely going to need two people to lift that safely.
Get a trailer. your body will severely thank you and boating will be a LOT more enjoyable.
--/edit--

And make sure you run it in a bucket and are completely happy with all the controls before you go to sea.

Things to test:
Starting and stopping when both hot and cold
Kill cord both works and you know how to refit and restart the engine
Gear shift
Any points on the throttle that it's a bit non-perfect. Some of the smaller 4 strokes are fine going from neutral idle to in gear idle but if you accelerate too quickly will stall.
how the tilt system works including all the tilt and trim points and how to get it back down again.

I would arrange to have an engine like that bolted to the transom. I have had smaller engines work them self loose on a transom when usingthe hand tighten clamps on the saddle bracket. That engine looks new well wear.
