Sod that I am sticking with my much lighter 9.8. Anyhow as of today it is now working again needed a new CD unit and the coil under the flywheel was touching the magnets and a lot of corrosion which was giving the impressiom that the engine was misfiring

I've got the 18hp version. The difference I've noticed is the ability to hold 4 adults easily on the plane at 15knots. Much higher torque at mid RPMs but little difference in top speed. About 22knots 2 up.

The 9.8hp 2 smoke is 26 kg. Easily transportable and carry with 1 hand.
Best bang for buck for SIBS. I spent months on-line looking for a mint one. These hold value for very good reasons. Bomb proof and light weight.

I have a 2006 25hp 2 stroke tohatsu (the black/red model shown in the original post) how much do you guys think it is worth. Only got around 32 hours on it. I bought it in september with a mint 4m honwave and trailer for 1700.
