>>>The little bug bear is that in order for the engine to be raised up, you have to put it in forward gear,

Please explain??

Regarding the 9.9 to 15hp issue it's a personal thing but I always buy the horsepower I need in the first place not rely on an upgrade which could turn out to be urban myth. The good thing about 2001 onwards 2-strokes in clean condition is that if you keep them nice they will hold their money so trading up at a later date doesn't involve a great loss on the old outboard.

In order for you to lift the engine, you need to put it in forward gear. If you put it in reverse too quickly, it tends to lift up the engine.

Thanks for the opinions chaps. Has anyone rigged up a remote to the gear selector but connected say below the throttle grip on the tiller??

If you're going to do that surely it's going to be easier to just buy one with a tiller shift?

How wide is your hull? I can sit to stbd on a bare SR4 (call it 2m beam as a round number)& still reach the (port side) tiller comfortably.

41kg
That's ridiculous! My 60 is 83Kg........
