Re: Mercury or Tohatsu outboard motor?

Strongly recommend the Tohatsu. We use a long shaft 6hp and move it between dinghies and sailboats. We have pushed a 24 foot wooden cutter with it at 5 knots.

Re: Mercury or Tohatsu outboard motor?

My preference has always been Yamaha.... but in your case, Merc V Tohatsu.... Tohatsu hands down. Great reliable engine. I've always found Mercury's flood too easily.
