I'm shopping for that exact motor right now, a 25 hp short shaft. I've owned a lot of different 9.9 and 15 hp in both 2 and 4 stroke. The 4 stroke is good on gas and there is the no mixing and less smell. Personally I want a 2 stroke, I don't think the weight and extra bucks are worth it.
Can I ask what is the best price have you got and where?
