I'm about to purchase
a new engine
for a dinghy
. The dinghy
is a "Porta-Bote" folding hard dinghy and requires a 4-5HP model 56lbs or less with a 15" shaft. I'm leaning towards the Suzuki or Tohatsu but the sales guy is telling me that Yamaha are the best for international parts
availability and serviceability. We are planning to do a lot of international cruising and it might be important to be able to easily get parts
(if needed) throughout the world. Any thoughts? Are the Yamaha's good engines and worth the extra money
over the Suzuki/Tohatsu?
I appreciate the feedback!
