Motor Order
« on: August 02, 2017, 02:20:28 PM »
Just order 6hp Tohatshu 25" shaft from Online Outboard. Really nice and efficient people. Gerry says my Eclipse should be ready 1st or 2nd week of September.  Like a kid waiting on Santa Claus.

Greg, I bought my Nissan 6HP 25" shaft sail pro from them, essentially the same motor.  It was a good experience.  You will have a lot of styrofoam to deal with when you unpack.  Remember, it will come with the crankcase oil drained so you will need to refill.  Also, buy one of those cheap tachs that wrap around the spark plug for break in.

I am still happy with my 4hp Tohatshu after several years.  Starts easy, long shaft, 3 gears, cheap price.  "A Good Thing".
