What size motor would be best (or do you have) for ...

I used to run my Puma 23 (3-4,000 lbs) just fine with a long shaft 4hp Evinrude. Whether you NEED a long shaft would depend on how far into the water you can lower the engine - I would think most sailboats benefit from the long shaft - deeper is fundamentally better...

Good luck.
