We've got a few boats and run 100hp & 150hp Yamahas 4strokes and all of these engines average approximately 1000 hours per year and are strictly serviced every 100 hours. At 2500 hours we fit new motors and go again with Yamaha. The engines are in salt water 24/7 and are never flushed out.
Sinful I know to the recreational boater but in the commercial world its not possible.
So for my car topper I have a 15hp 2 stroke Yamaha, starts every time when I get the opportunity to use it, yes it weighs about 36kgs and is a bit heavy but with the performance we get out of our work engines why would I have anything else.
Someone above stated a 9.5hp engine. I recall that the Yamaha 9.5hp is the same weight as they use the same block and leg assembly.
I have never heard of the Parsun, sounds like a name that comes from a country with "a great wall"
Good luck in your choice and remember that tinnies are not the easiest thing to row at any time.
