Ideas for Good, Uses Outboard

Need a new outboard. 10 hp or so. Any sugestions on where to look for good used ones? What to look for? This is my first boat and im pretty green with boats/motors/sailing in general.

I have a Nissan 9.8 hp two stroke that I'd sell at a good price. Shipping would be a killer, though.

The Nissan was too big for my new dinghy, so I bought a Tohatsu 5 hp two stroke. Tohatsu makes both engines. Very good, reliable motors. Always start on the third pull (first pull is for full choke, next two pulls at half choke). Even after being stored for the off season, they both would fire up with no problems.

Check ebay and craigslist. And if there is reputable outboard shop in your area, they might have some decent rebuilds available.
