Be aware that the 9.9 Tohatsu Four-stroke may be significantly heavier than the two-stroke and as such may present some problems. It may also be significantly larger too. If your outboard is in a well or on a bracket, make sure that the engine will fit or the bracket can take the weight and torque.

BTW, the 9.9 Mercury, Nissan and Tohatsu are really all the same engine, so if you can get any of them for less than the others, it doesn't really matter which brand you get, as they're all made by Tohatsu.

Better get cracking, cause May 9th is just around the corner.

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.
