New 9.9 4stroke Tohatsu vs Mariner
I know a lot of people on here aren't fans of the portable 4 strokes but I've got my reasons!
I was happily set with getting a 9.8 Tohatsu but have now seen a Mariner 9.9 slightly cheaper (only £25 but still). Both are on extrememarine at £1649 (Toahtsu) and £1625 (Mariner).
A lot of people say Tohatsu and Mariner's are the same but the Mariner is an extra 2 KG so they obviously aren't exactly the same.
I'm after a recoil start, manual tilt with tiller.
So, which would you choose?
Ignoring the negligable price difference, the slightly lighter but 0.1 HP less Tohatsu or the Mariner?
Thoughts and opinions appreciated!
