You won,t do the sailing performance of the boat any favor by adding more weight to the back end. I think replacing a good 3.5 2 stroke OB would be a bad use of money - buy a new jib or something that makes for a better sailboat. Have you figured out a good exterior spot to securely stow an external tank?. Back when I had a 22' with a 4HP OB, I used to just turn the engine around for reverse, worked better than in reverse gear. Your money I guess... In terms of useability, whatever OB you have should first and foremost be a long shaft.

In terms several regards...
