Honda 4 Stroke Outboard Corrosion Problems

i am almost sold on putting 2 x 50hp honda 4 stroke outboards on my catamaran.i was speaking to my friend from nz a few days ago who has had all kinds of boats in his life as a fisherman and sailor.he is old school and really knows what he is talking about.he told me he bought a brand new honda 4 stroke 8 or 9 years ago and used it in a salt water environment.he said he had big problems with corrosion, mainly on the tops of the valves.they have had a major revamp since then, ( in 06 i think ) and he does not know what they are like now.
has anybody out there who has one and uses it a lot in a salt water environment had any experiences/problems with the current model.

i would greatly appreciate any feedback.
