The 2 HP also has no transmission. That means trying to use it to maneuver at very slow speeds is very difficult, since the centrifugal clutch tends to cut in and out at low speeds. Neither has reverse.
Personally, I don't think that the air-cooled 2 HP is a good idea. I have the Tohatsu 3.5 HP and it is a very solid little outboard. Tohatsu makes many of the Nissan and Mercury models as well, including the 3.5 HP you're looking at.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
