How about service costs and requirements to keep the warranty up?
Ross at Ron hale is a great bloke price wise best I've seen I went down to pick mine up only reason was wanted other stuff so did it in one go.
Starting wise same as a car all auto the engine decompresses it's self for easy starting one pull on mine hot or cold and it's away nice and quiet.
I am still running mine in but up to 3000rpm she's as sweat as a nut plenty of power in fact more power than I need my boat is a 3.8m really just got stubby cone ends and weighs in at 100kg proberbly 150kg loaded plus my 18 stone so a 20hp for you will be spot on.
Service costs not sure but why not try getting a deal with your local dealer.
This is my third DF & fifth Suzuki had no problems, I wouldn't say I am hung on suzuki's because I have had two new yams too no probs with them either and to be honest all the main makes are good.
Worth getting on the Ron hale site to compare all engines I printed off all that I was interested in and sat for a few weeks before I decided but this is the time to buy
Hope that helps let me know if you need any pics happy to help
