Thanks for the offer but cannot do a straight swap. I'd have it up for sale at 995-1250 so I may as well sell the yam.

Max,

I uprated my 9.9 Tohatsu many years ago, this in effect changed it from a 9.9 to a 15 Hp.

The change was a restrictor on the carb i believe.

Wondering if you have a similar device ?

Ahhh, no, not possible - the 9.8 and 9.9 are two different engines.

Hi Max, I had a similar experience with my old Zodiac 3.1. Initially had a 10hp 4 stroke and on the tidal Thames it felt slightly underpowered - struggled to get up on the plane against the tide. Upgraded to a 15hp 2 stroke and there was a noticeable increase in power, can get up on the plane against all but the strongest tides. Can't offer any speed stats, but definitely worth the expense in my experience. Tim

I've just purchased a brand new 2 stroke 15hp Mercury. Previously had a 8 hp 2 stroke Mercury. 2 people with a load of fishing gear I could plane easily with my 3.4m quicksilver sport. But 3 people with same load not a chance. Could almost get up on plane but not quite. I'm testing out the 15 hp this weekend. I will report back with my results

Tohatsu 9.8 are like gold dust due to their weight. The 15 is considerably more heavy. I reckon you would be able to do a straight swap with a 15 owner looking for something lighter.

I have a 9.8 on a 3.4 an it flies.

I don't understand why a (stong) tide would make a difference. As to get on the plane you surely need the same water speed whether you are going with the tide or against, assuming the water is level.
