Tohatsu SailPro

I have used a SailPro 6 for three seasons on my Hunter 23.5. Hullspeed easily achieved, reliable, good fuel consumption and it tops up house-battery when motoring from Blaine WA to San Juans. Only complaint: steer-damping thumbscrew not adequate to hold course at low speed.
Since some cretin stole it from my garage I am now looking to replace with same.

We now have a steering lock mechanism available as an option on the 4/5/6 frame.

I have an 8 hp 2 stroke Johnson, high thrust prop, with the extra long shaft and a charging circuit.
Starts easy and runs like a dream.

I can't speak to your application or expected fuel consumption, but we have a Nissan/Tohatsu TLDI 40HP on one of our skiffs at our cabin. I love the engine, it has really performed flawlessly the past 5 years, and very easy to maintain.

I have a Mariner 5 which is a rebadged Tohatsu.

The steering friction device stopped working so I pulled the pivot apart and regreased the friction shoe and thumb screw. It worked perfectly once some grease was added manually to the friction area.
