which engine approx 100 hp

hi guys

talking to a friend today who has just purchased 5.6 sporteese rib. he is wondering which engine to go for

Honda 4 stroke. Old design? Poor power to weight ratio?

Yamaha hpdi 2 stroke. plenty of torque? newer design? fairly economical? easy to service?

Evinrude etech? Good design? long service intervals?

Second hand value of all? Parts availability?

All comments welcome

Take it easy ....but, take it all the way.

Tohatsu 90 tldi - a lot lighter than 100hp models.

Or Evinrude ETEC 90hp or similar!!!

I would try to buy a new type 2 stroke - as good on fuel as the 4 strokes but lighter.
