great low cost engine, they require a fair amount of maintenance but not a whole lot more than other outboards at twice the price. with regular fresh water flushes and the occasional oil change my 5hp has lasted years. I wouldn't recommend this engine to anyone without a good understanding of mechanics and maintenance as it would end up ruined within a month or two. however on the back of a 30kg boat and a single person aboard the engine can accomplish an enjoyable wave skipping speed, and a steady pace with more.

all in all i feel the engine grades four stars mainly due to its low cost but also because it has never failed me and apart from a few reasonable quirks accomplishes all expectations.
