I own a Honda 2hp and noise is not an issue. If you didn't know it was air cooled, you wouldn't know it was air cooled! It sounds nothing like the Gamefisher/Briggs & Stratton weed eater-type air cooled outboards. The current model does indeed come with a centrifugal clutch. Older models were offered with the centrifugal clutch as an option.

Kwalters,

Sometime back you posted about having to use the choke to keep it running. It would be interesting to learn what you found the problem to be?

Thanks, Dabnis

I have a Honda 2 hp...at idle its acceptable, but at WOT it could wake the dead...IMO...and I've been to two Metallica concerts!?

I will never purchase another Honda motor...this 2 hp is so sensitive to fuel its ridiculous! I have a Honda motor on my pressure washer, POS too...and the Honda mower...another POS.

Cheers,
Shawn

I have a 10 year old 5 hp Nissan that will plane the 20 plus year old ten foot Archilles wood floor with two people. (130 lbs plus me at 200)

That wood floor is almost imposible to assemble on deck so I'm looking at the porta bote, but still like inflatables. The AL roll up floor by Archilles is a consideration and the Walker Bay's inflatable floors might also be a consideration, but they have not been responsive to email even though they do offer a ten year warrenty while Archilles has reduced theirs to 5.
