My dad and I were always Evinrude men. In 1991 he got a SWEET deal on a little 8 horse Nissan (Same as Tohatsu) to replace our Evinrude 4.5 kicker. Here we are in '06 and it is now the kicker on my boat. It has taken a BEATING in the La. marsh and it is still so reliable, I would stake my life on it. I've also owned a 2.5 and a 3.5 horse. They were all 2 stroke and they were all great. I have no experience with 4 strokes, but they have a spectacular reputation in my view. - Coach
I had a 25 on my carolina skiff.. Never once had an issue with it in 4 years.....
We also have one at work.. It has been in use on our boatright boat for the last 7 years.. It doesnt even get flushed at all.. Still running like a top... That motor has taken a hardcore BEATING at our facility.
As i recall, Tahotsu is the oldest outboard dealer... Just now really getting into the US Market.. Thats all they use in the south pacific
