Briggs & Stratton outboard????????????

My old Evinrude 2 stroke 6hp outboard on our Catalina 22 is shot. I am planning to go with a 4 stroke 5 - 6 hp engine. I am interested in the Briggs & Stratton 5hp outboard for a couple of reasons. 1. Cost. 2. Made in the US. 3. No water impeller to maintain. 4. Exhaust into the air only rather than into the water which then bubbles into the air. I know they are not as quiet as a "normal" 4 stroke outboard. Anybody out there have experience with one? Been around one? Thoughts? This is a fresh water boat.

Thanks,

dale
