Welcome your replies.
I have an Aerotec and a Tohatsu mfs20e 43kg which is the same engine as the merc.
I have found it to be a great match for the aerotec. I have had a 15 and 25hp on there previously.
The 25 was amazing but 53kg and very thirsty.
The 15 is great one or two up and the 20 is where you'd expect it bang in the middle for performance.
The good thing about the newer 20 is its very good on fuel, no smell and my experience of it is that it doesn't suffer from the dreaded transom splash.
The only downside from the previous 2t outboards is that if you run the engine on remotes you cannot quickly convert back to tiller as I could with the 25 is that matters to you.
