Wrong, Tohatsu makes them for Nissan, Mariner, Mercury in the range 3.5 to 30 HP in 4 strokes and 3.5 to 50 HP in 2 strokes same models. Tohatsu and Nissan are presently being comercilalized in USA, Nissan has slight more price. Brunswick Corp has a joint venture with Tohatsu in their Japanes manufacturing facility at Komagane plant along with big core parts for bigger Merc/Mariner engines.

In the good old days Brunswick used to have a collaboration with Yamaha.

Happy Boating

upgrading to the v4 yammie may well be a good call. but I think the Honda 130 Honda will be a Heartbreaker they weigh nye on a quater of a ton and that will have a horrible effect on a short rib. Also the power to wieght is awful just not ribbish

I had a Tohatsu 90 on a searider and it went well nice balance. I don't know what they are worth
