Good Boat Motors

I have a 115 Mercury motor on my 18 ft. center console. The boat is old and heavy and I believe the motor is early 80s. I only get about 2 - 3 M.P.G. and I just got the news that the lower unit was leaking oil and may be cracked. If it requires expensive repair, I am going to replace the motor. I am old school and my experiance tells me to trust only Evenrude, Johnson or Mercury. Are there other manufacturers that are now as good.?
Though I'm not familiar with them, I've heard good things about the Honda boat engines as well.
