I have the 3.5 for my dinghy, and while it is light, reliable and starts easily, it certainly not overpowered. My biggest downside is that it has a miniscule fuel tank, and cannot be connected to an external tank. The result is that I have to refill it far more often than I would like, and often while bouncing around in somewhat tricky conditions. As much as the other characteristics of the engine are good, the tiny fuel would make me think long and hard if I had to make the decision again.
