what are you running now? reason being has a 100 Yamaha for like $6250 but it has no controls, guages, etc. If you laready have a Yammie, great way to go. If not, might want to consider the whole package which on a Yammie is another $500-800+.

Can't comment much on Yam vs Nissan. Sorry. But what I keep thinking is Dick's setup. Montauk w/50 Merc 4. Says WOT is 36 or 38! There's a 60 also which is a re-tuned 50. That's nearing the limits of the Montauk for me anyhow. Heck, my worn out rattlebox 80 only gets me to 38. I keep saying when mine dies I'll consider it more closely then. Good luck.

A Tohatsu/Nissan 70hp should be about $4,200 to $4,600 installed with controls etc. Tohatsu/Nissan have a 2 year warrenty. The 70hp is a three cylinder, three carb, oil injection motor with a heavy duty lower unit. The 90hp carb motor has the same lower unit, with a much larger block. The carb engines are not full of high tech toys, but they are very servicable. Many dealers will ship parts overnight if needed. Tohatsu/Nissan dealers are not as plentiful as Mercury or Yamaha. The injected Tohatsu/Nissan 90's are brand new. They are using the same type of injection and engine control system as Mercury is on their Optimax line. I have never seen one to comment on them. They weigh 10 to 15% more than the carb versions. Tohatsu has just revised their web site. They are an "old line" outboard supplier, producing outboards in Japan from 1956. For comparison, Honda started manufacturing outboards about ten years later.

Tohatsu's web site:

Not true Honda has being doing outboards since the 70's. Another fact is suzuki is the largest outboat manufacture in the world.
