I only have a 10hp tohatsu, but there is only ever two of us.
Any one in the southwest got one of these for sale ?
The 380 suggested by Nick on the link looks in good condition, the price seems ok, don't know the cost of a new one including trailering wheels. A 10 Hp will be a poor performer, forget about planing with more mates, maybe 2 or just you alone.
Have not specified number stroke of your Tohatsu engine, if it were a 2 stroke 9.9 model/10 in some countries will be exactly the same as a 15 HP. That is both have same 247 cubic displacement, read valve, gear ratio, weight, & crank case, looking at the service manual the only apparently difference is a different code part inlet manifold, throttle arm/roller for the 9.9 & 10 respectively. Is a simple part engine conversion.
Ask your local Toh dealer for parts/hand labor price quote for converting your 10 to 15 Hp so to have more power available.
