Re: Outboard Advice

From the sounds of it you'll be using the boat as a power boat more often than some.. I think that will rule out electric unless you load way too much weight in batteries.

A 4HP gas outboard will probably be more than plenty, but you'll likely need to go that route to get full F_N_R capability, which would be most convenient. The new 4 cycle engines are much quieter than the 2 cycles (which are becoming unavailable in any event)
