Outboard motor for dingy

If you go with a 4 cycle, be careful about the weight. A recent Practical Sailor mag has a letter from a guy who reports that using a 10HP 4 cycle on an inflatable rated for 10HP resulted in problems in the engine due to it being too low in the water - the inflatable settled too much with a 4 cycle. The writer said after two warranty repairs the dealer gave him credit towards a 2 cycle...

good luck.
