Re: Motor vs Rowing inflatable dinghy...

I had an inflatable similar to yours with a Honda 2HP 4 stroke. With two of us plus gear it would go about 5 knots. Weighed 27 lbs and the small tank would last all day trolling.
I used to carry an extra pint can of gas but never had to use it.

Rowing in anything but calm winds and much current was a chore. don't work hard, work smart.
