Sorry James, I cant give any info on the more recent Tohatsu ribs. I understand that BH Marine have had warranty claims on the seapro ribs also recently. I believe that a previous poster in this thread has made a claim fairly recently.

The twatsoooo engines (Nissan) are bomb proof in my experience. many smaller motors are in fact re-badged tohatsu's. I have now owned 3 of them and none have given me any problems. I am actually now in the process of buying a fourth, a 115 for my new boat.

PM sent James.

life's full of ups "n" downs.

Hi Yoyo,

I have replied to your PM.

I wont be getting a seapro boat thats for sure after finding out bad things!

I want to look into Tohatsu boats more though, so hopefully I will find out where they are made and if their recent ones have had any problems?!

If anyone knows please say! Thanks.

J@mes, have you ever paused to consider why someone would want to give you information by PM (Personal Message) rather than just post it on a public forum?

True (hint taken) but by me asking on here, I would hope people would PM me if they are not willing to speak their mind in a public forum freedom of speech and all that!

Also one might think if I don't get many replies then there isn't much info out there?! Who knows?! I know one thing though, if you don't ask you don't get!!!
