Re: Tohatsu / Nissan motors...& a bit more...

Hi, Thom!
Thank you for the guidance!
I have run the Whipray with a tiller 25 mercury for the better pqart of three years. Very shallow draft, 28 mph top speed, and very economical. I decided to do something radical and installed a small console, steering, binacle, and a 60 hp mercury. The weight of the new engine is 220 pounds, up from 112 for the 25. Anyway, the draft of the Whipray has been compromised more than I care to admit, and I would prefer a lighter motor. The 50 hp Tohatsu (without the new injection) weighs 153 pounds, and with your recomendation, and the blessing of several friends who spend alot of time in the Bahamas and swear that these motors never seem to break, I will go forward with the Tohatsu.
Thankyou again for your response!
