Doing my usual trawl of boats and outboards looking for an engine to replace the Yam 90 (probably at the end of the season..........)
I am still unsure which way to go....second hand Opti 135 /150 or Suzi Df 140 (the former appear to be easier to come by..........the latter my top choice.
Whilst trawling saw this....http://www.boatsandoutboards.com/view/F212920
Have looked through old posts and Tohatsu seem to get mixed reviews. However.......
Does anyone have experience of this 140 engine? Any comments /guidance on fuel economy compared to say Opti /Speed and (most importantly) reliability and ease of getting parts........
To get ANY work done on Suzi /Merc would have to travel circa 30 miles, there is a Tohatsu dealer (windjammer) in Milford 40 miles away, so all much of a muchness with regard getting work done /from a Geographical pov.
Thanks in anticipation,
PS Having said all that may just bite the bullet, break my Cardi (tight fisted) ways and buy new....if only for the peace of mind!
