Does anyone have 40hp or 50 hp motor comparisons? Thinking of upgrading this winter to a new motor for my zodiak. The tohatsu is looking pretty good for my needs (wanting Tiller with rope start and light as I can get). The 40hp is same block as the 50hp and the 50 is same weight at about 300$ MSRP more....no reason not to go with the 50?
I have done some looking at manufacture websites but it seems a lot of variables...
Manufacture HP Weight Transom stroke steering Trim Alternator EFI Starter MSRP.... others
