Re: Tohatsu 6hp Sail-Pro Version
I have the 9.8 Nissan - - 25" shaft, elect start and 6amp charging. Absolutely love it.
Pro: Starts very very easily, quiet (purrs), miserly on gas, easy to use controls even when hanging off the back of my sailboat, no smoke, no smell.
Cons: HEAVY - pretty difficult to mount and dismount. Also, the flywheel broke the first time out. Replaced under warranty though and no problems since.
overall, very happy with Nissan motor. 25" shaft is perfect length. elec start very very nice and charging circuit awesome.
