The latest version has been stretched by 20cm (basically by extending the sponsons) but this has also resulted in the max allowable power being raised to 75hp. Now that's overkill!

Tohatsu TLDI all the way all there motors are saltwater ready and the also build motors for Mercury, BRP and Nissan. pricing is good and their key market is industrial fishing and those guys cant afford to have a motor that isn't reliable.

I'll take your word for all that, but I just don't see one sitting on the transom of my Walker Bay.

Sorry, no offence meant by my reply, but I had a Tohatsu previously and found it very noisy.

Do you actually now own the boat? If so, I'm surprised that your supplier didn't offer a 'complete package' deal.

They did, but I chose to take the boat only and shop around for a better deal on the motor. Also, I wasn't sure how long it would take to shift my Avon Rover, and needed to sell it to help fund the new engine. As it happens, it sold within 10 days so I'm able to get an engine earlier than anticipated.

Er, Not quite the right theory. The weight of a car vs its engine is too disproportionate. It's the same for petrol vs heavier diesel engines in small and big cars.

Horses for courses. All about weight, noise and throttle response. Hedgecutter vs lawn mower. Scrambler vs Harley.

If you have an outboard to maximise space, you ideally don't want too much weight hangin off the back. If you play about in the waves or pull ringos and boarders etc you want quick throttle response and lightness, a 2 is best. If you just cruise and troll, or do 1000s of hours commercially a 4 is best.
