    Question Honda 20HP vs. Tohatsu 18HP

    I'm curious about the power difference between the Honda 20 & the Tohatsu 18 4-strokes. Is anyone familiar with both of these O/Bs?

    Also, if anyone has any strong opinions (positive or negative) on either of these O/Bs, I would appreciate your input.

    Thank you.

    We used to own a Tohatsu 2-stroke 18HP and it served us well as a kicker on our 22' jetboat. Very good power to weight ratio and never any problems. Traded it back to Marita for an small inflatable and 9.8 Tohatsu.
    Currently we own a Honda 20HP 4-stroke and it seems to be a good motor. I have put about 50 kicker hours on it and have no complaints. Just bought a larger Powerthrust prop for it but never got a chance to use it. Now that our boat is sold the Honda is going to go on the market this week.
