Have tried the Honda 2 HP a few times and hated it:
Heavy and it vibrates like shaking is going out of style.
Same with the Mercury
3.3 two stroke..
All them single
cylinder engines are a pain in the stern.
I love my old Evinrude 2 stroke
, 2 cylinder, 10 years old or so.
Don't think they make 'em anymore so I have to keep overhauling it..The weight is only low 30s (Lbs) becuase there is no reverse gear
and no metal cover.
(They made 2 versions, the "de-luxe" with reverse gear
, metal cowling and other stuff, and the lean and mean light-weight plastic Evinrude
that I have.
Would not change a thing...Except when the 4 stroke
, 4 HP motors comes down to 32 lbs, and $800.00, then I would switch.
