In most cases if you're absolutely after minimum weight you're probably going to have to give up neutral/gear shift.

Our 3.5 Nissan has at least a neutral position for idle (spin the motor for reverse) I think that feature is worth the extra couple of pounds.. absolutely the most reliable piece of equipment on our boat, esp considering the relatively limited use.
