I’ve also got the Suzuki 2.5hp. The f/n gear was a selling point for me vs. the Honda, and I think it came out well in a comparative review in one of the sailing mags. Only comes out once a year for annual holidays, so far no issues since we bought it in 2008 for a trip to Chichester (apart from a lost shear-pin šŸ˜³ ). Mounted it direct to the transom on our MKII, but we’ve got a standoff bracket on our MKIV, which means it doesn’t foul either the mainsheet or the rudder šŸ’”
