I just got a 2.5 Yamaha for my 8ish foot inflatable. I was looking for the lightest one possible but the local yamaha dealer not being filled with dinks was the reason I went with that brand. I looked all over the internet and could not really find much info on the smaller outboards beyond people having a personal favorite.

A friend got a Nissan 6.5 and he really likes it. It looked to me like that black paint would get pretty hot to the touch but his lives on his fishing boat so he does not have to carry it around. The grey Yamaha coloring gets hot enough in the sun. Probly not a big issue where you are though.

If you have a must have item maybe you can narrow the search down a bit but from what I saw they all seem pretty much the same.
