For what it's worth, I've been using my Honda 2 all summer and it still looks brand new. It never stays lowered in the water, however, and in fact is stowed aboard in a dry forepeak on its own mount.

I mean, that's sort of the point: it's easy to stow, so you might as well.

To the OP: Tohatsu/Nissan was my second choice after the Honda, which I chose because I like the idea of air-cooling and because I have had a Honda BF100 (23 years old, still works perfectly) and a Honda 2000EU genset. I am familiar with their little ways.
