As you say,I don't think you need a 9.8 on a T22... the 8 horse would be plenty. Whether the "charging system" is truly effective would be nice to know.. electric start is hardly necessary for such a small engine otherwise.

btw, in the smaller sizes Tohatsu, Merc, Nissan etc are all built by Tohatsu - one interesting tidbit when we last bought an outboard is that Nissan offered twice the warranty.
