Re: Lightest dinghy motor available

Recently I bought a Suzuki 2.5hp. Weighs 30lbs. Self contained fuel tank. Was looking at the Honda 2.3 but don't like the centrifigul clutch. If you give it to much throtle on startup it can start moving and I don't think that is very safe. I have talked to a few Honda owners and they say you get used to it and they are happy with their engines. The Suzuki has F/N and you turn it around for Reverse. The tiller also flips over so you have complete control. I like it and it pushes my WM RU-3 8.5ft inflatable just fine.
