I agree, nothing beats the 2 stroke 15 HP Yamaha outboard.

I passed on 3D tenders when shopping for a new dinghy… I’d spotted the design problems. I bought an AB with double alu bottom capable of 15 HP. I luckily found a brand new Yamaha Enduro, bought and placed in a garage and the bloke died 3 days later. Had never been run. The Yamaha is the best OB i’ve ever owned.
I had a Honda 4 ST on my last boat and it was a PITA. Vibrations were its key feature. Hard to start too.
