Bought it last April at the Defender sale... it is relatively quiet with decent power. Gets the little inflatable with a wooden rollup floor up on plane with two people in the thing...that's about 350 lbs. of people, since neither my crew or I are lightweights. It'll get the portabote moving pretty well too, even with three people in it.

The fuel tank on it is a bit small IMHO... gets about an hour's run time out of the 1/3 gallon tank.

For me and what I need, the size and weight is almost perfect and I haven't had any problems with the engine, so no contact with the manufacturer.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
