Outboards for sailboat

I just bought a Yamaha 4hp 4 stroke. I think it should be fine for my Colgate 26. The company offers a 3.5hp engine as an option with the boat, and they say that is plenty. The Colgate 26 has a displacement of 2600#, so just over 1/2 of the O''Day 26''s weight. We are just motoring a short distance from our dock. Rob
