FYI-Mercury's small outboards are made by Tohatsu, as are the small Nissans.

I like the small Tohatsu/Mercury/Nissans, and have the Tohatsu 3.5 HP four-stroke. At under 40 lbs., it is pretty easy to handle. Doesn't have a reverse gear though.

What size/type/make dinghy are you planning on putting it on?

We are considering options to power our new dinghy and would like to know what folks think about the differences (if any) between the various brands of small outboards. We're looking in the 2.5 hp range and the three brands available locally are Mercury, Suzuki and Yamaha. What think you?
