I am not sure about the 5 hp motor of Briggs and Stratton. 20 years ago they were probably good, but not today, but that is just my opinion. You cannot go wrong with a Yamaha, but $ may be an option.... I have a 25 hp tiller Nissan and it runs like a pin. Try outboards.com for more info and you may even check into getting a Tohatsu. I had a 70 horse, that was really good. Mercury, Rude, Mariner, or etc can be good also. My experience has been that Japanese motors tend to be better, but this is just my opinion. Take it for what you think it is worth.
