Re: Lightest dinghy motor available

The common thread here is that the lightest outboards are 2-stroke. Another benefit of a 2-stroke is that you do not need to change the engine oil every year, although you will still need to change the lower unit oil.

There is a Suzuki 2HP and a Tohatsu 3.5 available on eBay right now too.
