Re: Outboard Advice

Unless you need to punch through steep, heavy chop with fast currents, an air cooled 4 stroke 2 HP Honda, or equivalent, gas outboard should work fine. IIRC, the Honda weighs just about 27 lbs. I had one for many years, ran it hard, and had no problems with it. It uses a very minimal amount of fuel.
