Too right!!! Trouble is I have nothing to compare it with - YET!!!
It is pretty quiet but a little bit lumpy at low speeds - assume a 2 stroke would be smoother?
You have 2 lay it on one side only or better keep it upright - not really a problem.
Starts first pull when you remember to pull out the choke knob - push it in as soon as it's running though.
I am totally amazed by how little fuel it uses - so far it works out at about 1.5 litres per hour - even when running pretty quickly - has not had much use flat out as you need pretty flat waters for that - it is quite a small boat after all.
It is a bit awkward to lift - could do with a proper carrying handle - easy enough with 2 lifting it out of the boot and onto the transom - then just push the boat on it's wheels!!!
