Re: Outboard Advice
Nissans are rebranded Tohatsus.
I have the Honda BF2A (older 2hp model). It's very light and I don't find it that loud compared to other 4 stroke engines, including the 4hp Tohatsu. The engine note is a bit different than water cooled engines, but they are all loud. It's a work horse of an engine. No neutral can make life interesting though (the newer models have a centrifugal clutch that gives you a neutral). I can't complain about the price, but bought it used.
