    need a like button on here, this is exactly true. I’m wearing work boots made in China made for well known brand, one year so far probably another six months left.

    Search around and find one of the last year 2.5 2strokes whatever brand it doesn't matter. I think the last year merc made them was 2001?

    I don't - but they have a very good reputation and perform very well and are light as well.

    Hmm have had 3 Honda ATV, 2 Honda generators, 2 honda lawnmowers,1 x 9.9 Honda outboard..DAMN HEAVY..LOL
    Everything on that list is still running except 1 damn lawnmower..thing crapped out after only 22 years..
    Don't know where any of these were built...just reliable..IMO..
    IT'S YOUR hard earned $$$$ you need to be confident in the item you purchased..
    Good luck with the outboard AND the hunt.
    Cheers

    As much as I LOVE Honda stuff, I'd step back from a made in china one too.

    I'd look at suzuki or yamaha as long as they are made in Japan.

    If no luck there, I'd look for a mint used japan Honda
