I think you are referring to a Mariner 3.5hp four stroke and the Suzuki 2.5hp four stroke.????
I own a Suzuki 2.5 hp and it is a cracking little engine.
It is used as an auxiliary engine on my Sib - the main engine being a Tohatsu 20hp 4 stroke.
The little Suzuki does have a few minor issues - but nothing that can't be rectified with a drill and screw driver.
It is super light and has proved to be super reliable during my 5 year ownership.
I probably clock up 20 + hrs per annum on it.
I have knowledge of the Mariner 3.5hp also.
It is a bigger heavier more robust unit.
If it is for a main sib engine and weight isnt paramount it would be the Mariner 3.5hp every time for me.

There is one on ebay Alan for 400, 2007. It looks in decent condition.

Are you going to be free one afternoon this week mate.
