dinghy outboard- brands?

as far as 2 strokes, the 9.9 & 15 hp are the same engines with different carbs on most brands, so same weight. met a fellow in keys who offered to trade his newer 4 stroke even for my 2. almost did till considered weight of the 4. too much for practical moving up & down from rail. yamaha has more power than merc in 2 stroke, but a little heavier.

You''re correct . . . both the Yamaha 2-cycle 9.9hp and 15hp, have the same weight of 79 lbs. Interestingly, the weight difference between Yamaha 4-stroke 9.9 (91 lbs) & 15hp (99 lbs) is 8 lbs - almost insignificant.

I suppose the 20 lb difference between 2-cycle & 4-stroke is considerable, if removing the engine from the dinghy is done often. Regardless, I''m going with the 99 lb 15hp model. It''s very difficult to pass up the deal I found on this boat/motor package. My mizzen boom also makes a great motor crane.
