Re: Lightest dinghy motor available

2 stroke 2 hp suzuki weight 22 pounds. (1992 vintage) Tough, simple and reliable. Mine is named "Hem 'n' Haw". (After the po of the motor.) He gave it to me because it wouldn't start. A little cleaning of the magnets in the flywheel and off it went. I offered to give it back but he had already purchased a new one and was off to play tennis in some remote location for the winter. He never came back! MI got him on the tennis court! Yikes! I use it on three different boats regularly and think of him often. Tennis?
