INMA 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.

Kielanders 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 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.

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.

Hey Bubblehead...I know this is a year old post from a resurrected thread, but if you're still in the same boat (so to speak) I need to trade up for more power. I have a great little Yamaha 5HP 2 stroker on my C25....it's a great motor, lightweight and runs like a champ....but I need just a little more oompfh. If you're serious about trading that Honda 9.9.....

labatt I know this is an older thread that has just popped back up - but a word of warning if you go for a Tohatsu. We have a 20HP Tohatsu and love it, BUT finding a dealer for repairs and finding parts like zincs has proven to be difficult. If you buy a Tohatsu make sure you know if there's an authorized service center near you in case of a warranty repair - and if you buy a zinc, buy three. While I like our engine, I wish I had spent the extra few bucks on a Honda 20HP - lighter, and far more dealers and part accessibility.
