I was finally able to score a new outboard! New to me anyway.

I would a guy online that had a 2019 Tohatsu 20hp long shaft for sale with just under 10hrs on it. Just so happened he was literally 20 miles away so I jumped on it. We really wanted the short shaft but for the price, I rebuilt the diy jackplate. Solo I got her to 28 with throttle to go and backed off. Now I cruise half throttle doing 20mph solo and 3/4 with another adult! The fuel consumption (or lack of) is the best part. With a buddy onboard we went a total of 38 miles doing 20mph and only burned through 1 3/4 gallons of gas!!!


I deleted crapatalk or I would update pictures.
