According to the Yamaha website, the weight difference is 91lbs versus 83lbs. I suspect the weight difference is mostly that the 9.9 has electric start. A quick check of the Yamaha website shows that the 8hp 2 stroke motor is only 60lbs, so at 83 lbs, you're already adding 23 extra pounds. In my case, that makes the boat heavy in the butt. Electric start might be nice, but I think these motor start pretty easily with the yank start.
