I Love microskiff.com!
So I am in the process of having a new skiff built for me. I was originally getting the Suzuki 50 in black. The boat is going to be green with all black trim so I kind of had my heart set on a black motor. Well I just found out that the suzukis are on back order and I really do not feel like waiting. I can get either a Tohatsu 50 in black or a Yamaha 50 hp in the yamaha silver. My gut tells me to go with the Yamaha because Ive had them in the past and they have always been great motors. The only draw back in it is not black so it does not really go with the color scheme on the boat. The Tohatsu on the other hand I just have zero experience with and know nothing about them. I do not want my motor decision to be made strictly because of color so Figured id ask you guys for some advice!! The Tohatsu is a little lighter then the Yamaha as well but I can afford the extra weight.
