Tohatsu 18 vs Parsun 15
I have a Zodiac Futura mk2c which currently has a short shaft 2012 Parsun 15 hp 4-stroke on it. It is easy to start and does fine. 20 knots with one person and 18 knots with two people.
But today I scored a 2004 Tohatsu 18 hp 2-stroke electric start. Unfortunately long shaft and no tiller or control box. But the engine has only been used in the river a couple of times since new, never seen salt. It has been sitting in a garage since then. At 900 EUR and as new condition I think it is a score.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to trying the Tohatsu on the Zodiac and compare it to the Parsun. Just need to make a bracket first and get a tiller etc. Probably need another propeller as well.
If anyone has a complete tiller, kill switch and related parts and you are willing to ship to Sweden, let me know.
