Both great boats. Pick the one that has the best combination of "makes your heart sing" and performance for your mission. The modes of propulsion on both boats are proven.

That said, be sure you have access to service and parts for any motor you buy (in a boat).

Best Wishes

Here's something that hasn't been mentioned in favor of the outboard - the E-tec G2.

Three-Year Limited Warranty
No Scheduled Dealer Maintenance for
Three Years of Normal Recreational Use

No Operational Break-In Procedure
Easy Starts (no choking or priming)
Digital Engine Management
Self Flushing Cooling System
Long Term Storage Design
Simplified Winterization Procedure
Digital Diagnostics
Low Oil Usage
and of course with the 2 stroke at 100:1 oil ratio - there are never any oil changes and no 2 stroke exhaust odor.

I wonder what they consider to be recreational use and what number of hours they expect for that.

Other than the "No Operational Break-In Procedure" and the warranty you can say the same thing about my Honda BF90D. The break in for my motor is basically only 2 hours. After that it just says don't run it a WOT for more than 5 minutes at a time for the next 8 hours. My warranty was 5 years. I got the ECU replaced at 4.9 years under the warranty.
