Good decision-the merc 200 only puts out about 15-18hp at the prop and weighs a load more.

My thoughts exactly, to heavy for 5hp power increase. Not worth it.

I'm also looking for the 25hp Force motor. Supposevly it is the lightest recent 25hp ever made, short shaft tiller weights only 42kg.
They are hard to come by, but they are also cheap.

update:

Had to carry my 15hp Johnson (32-34kg) a little bit further than usual, with the stairs down and waving zig-zag pattern...that felt kind of heavy once I gout to the dock...and there is a need to carry that back with the stairs going up.....at the end I felt exhausted. i can't see myself doing this with the 25hp Mercury (50kg) in a reasonably fast manner.
I feel kind of happy with choosing a lighter motor.
