Wanted - 10-15hp two stroke or four stroke outboard

Hi
Wondering if anyone might have an outboard to sell or might spot one for sale please.
Keen to get hold of a 10-15hp for my Honwave t38.
I had an older Honda BF10 which I sold because I found it heavy and hard to manhandle on my own.
So I am keen on a two stroke or a newer four stroke.
I have also now taken the decision to put it on a trailer so hopefully that will make things easier.
Any help, leads or advice appreciated please!
Cheers

4 stroke, go for suzuki or tohatsu 15hp, they are pretty light and are EFI engines, whereas the yammi 15hp is carb engine so slower on pickup etc
Dont exceed the CE plate rating though.

Personally I'd rather have the carb engine far simpler to repair & less fussy about the odd bit of water ingress into fuel. I doubt many folk would notice the difference in grunt

I think I'd decide the HP for sure before looking rather than take whatever comes up in 10 or 15hp motors. We have just downshifted to a 10hp because of weight but if that's not an issue for you... particularly saying you will move to a trailer... then I'd go 15hp as the minimum for a T38. Even consider a 20hp is you are sure to trail it.

Thanks for the advice guys. I have found a Mercury 9.9hp four stroke. Seems substantially lighter than my previous Honda BF10. Hopefully one day I'll find a 15hp two stroke or upgrade to a newer EFI! Cheers.

Well done on getting sorted. Those Mercury motors are about 37kg to the Honda at 42kg... they don't seem to be as bulky to handle as the Honda either.
