I know this is an older thread that has just popped back up - but a word of warning if you go for a Tohatsu. We have a 20HP Tohatsu and love it, BUT finding a dealer for repairs and finding parts like zincs has proven to be difficult. If you buy a Tohatsu make sure you know if there's an authorized service center near you in case of a warranty repair - and if you buy a zinc, buy three. While I like our engine, I wish I had spent the extra few bucks on a Honda 20HP - lighter, and far more dealers and part accessibility.
