Almost certainly looking at a 4-stroke since I can't be bothered with the oil mixing malarky. I kinda like the twin cylinder setup, and my current motor is actually in really good condition for its age, just had it serviced and it's running like a top. Ideally I want to pick up a long shaft version that doesn't run and then transplant the lower parts across.
Tohatsu make a 6hp single cylinder 4-stroke with a 25" leg, but if they are really that rough then I will perhaps consider the 8hp which is a twin. I think they weigh about the same as my current one.
Don't think there's easy access to the transom, I might be able to crawl under the cockpit or the alternative is to cut a hole in the back of the cockpit and just fit a hatch there afterwards.
