I have a Yamaha 4hp on my Columbia22..I can make maybe 4kts BUT its tough coming in against an outgoing tide or against headwinds over 15kts..
The 22 has an outboard well in the cockpit so the prop stays in the water in all conditions...I would get at least an 8hp if I were you..

I plan on adding a 6hp four stroke to my transom mount and use my 4hp for back up and the dingy
