9.9 hi thrust will work great but probably a bit of overkill an 8 would be plenty, I may have a 9.9 yam 4 stroke available though.


8 is not plenty if you want ti motor into a good breeze. Having had a 9.9 4 stroke and an 8hp 2 stroke on 2 different GBEs, for anything other than racing ,I'd want the 9.9 4 stroke.

How do the tohatsu's rate? They seem very popular overseas but don't see many around here. The 9.9hp 2 stoke seem good value and I understand are lightest in their class. They also come in a 25" leg version which would benefit some boats. If/when I replace my Yamaha I would be very tempted to try a tohatsu unless I hear some bad stories between now and then

I now have a Tohatsu 9.8 XL on the tri. Big improvement on the old 5hp Merc LS, but more thirsty as you would expect.
