The Honda is Light

I have the air cooled Honda. It won't push our little Walker Bay up on a plane, but that's not why we bought it. It's still way faster than rowing...

It is quiet. It is light. We can sling it with relative ease from the dinghy to the stern rail, but barely - I wouldn't want a heavier engine.

Don't be talked into to more power if it is light weight you are looking for.
