Just came from the Evinrude E-TEC site and seen that Evinrude has a small line of four stroke portables from 3.5 to 15 HP,...and they look identical to Tohatsu motors! So this begs the question,...if Tohatsu is making these motors for Evinrude now,...who is making Mercury's portables now since Tohatsu once made them? I have been away from the boating scene a while and have lost track of what's been going on motorwise in the marine industry. I have a 2007 four stroke Mercury on my 2010 Lund A-14 utility-v boat and I don't have much care for it,...Mercury has struck out with me,and I am
SERIOUSLY looking at a repower back to Evinrude,...which I have had before and had ALOT less trouble with. But I am not thinking four stroke,though,...I am thinking older OMC built 15 HP Evinrude/Johnson from late 1980's to early/mid 1990's two stroke motors. But then again,...I would NOT rule out trading up to these new Evinrude portables,...only wish they were two stroke instead of four stroke!
