There's a big difference when lifting the dinghy motor and trying to get it mounted on the dinghy between the 3.5 HP and the 4 HP. My friend borrowed my 3.5 HP Tohatsu last summer for a couple of weeks, because his 5 HP was in the shop. He ended up selling the 5 HP because of his wife. She was able to put the 3.5 HP in place without trouble...and preferred it to the 5 HP because of that. So does he.... since he used to have to do it all the time...now she can put the motor on the dink and put it away when they get back—or more importantly, when their two kids want to use the dink...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
