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

If you sail on an inland lake, 4 hp is probably OK, but if you sail in tidal waters, I would suggest about a 6-8 hp, and a long shaft. Most of the time you won''t need that much power, but when you''re up against a strong tidal current or higher-than usual winds, a little extra power would be helpful.
