Hey tohatsuguru- since you're monitoring this thread; 1st off, I have no problem ordering from you guys.

Any chance you could give your thoughts on the Sailpro? On paper, it looks perfect. Most T-22's are powered in that range. With a rated displacement of 3100 lbs, the 1/500 formula isn't far off. I assume it acconts for a certain amount of fudge factor like a heavy cruising load, or passengers. My concern is that the only user reports I have seen aren't great. While some have said they like the motor, they haven't really said how they use them- for example, just through the mooring field, or for hours at a time when there is no wind.

Any thoughts on how this motor might compare to a 1996 short shaft 2 stroke johnson? How about noise and vibration?

I really appreciate people's input here. $1500-$2000 is a pretty big outlay for me. I just want to do it right.
