What do you think about Tohatsu engines? I've got a friend that swears by them but I havent heard much else. I checked them out at the new england boat show and they sound pretty good for the money. $4,300. for a 70hp. The salesman said Tohatsu makes engines for all the major manufacturers. any advice would be great. I have a 72 montauk. David

I have heard from another forum that Tohatsu is the choice of fishermen in Japan and are held in high regard, so I wouldn`t be suprised that they make them for other manufacturers. As for the price, $4300 actually is a little high. You said that is a great price, are other brands in you`re area high in price? I can get a new Johnson 70horse for $4200 in OHIO. Please respond-JACK.

Jack- I actually found a place in Houma LA. that sold it over the internet for $3900. no sales tax! -(talk to Chris Collins at Houma Marine) I just took delivery and its being installed today by a local tohatsu shop. I really like this engine. it will be perfect on my 17" whaler. -david

David, I acctually may look into one myself if my 85h.p. Johnson goes bad. I also like the 70h.p. better than the heavy, over-powered 85h.p. Mine is on my 1975 `17 Currituck. I feel 85h.p. is overkill on that hull. I troll fish alot and the 70h.p. seems perfect, according to others that have them on a `17 hull! Regards-JACK.
