Outboards for sailboat

I had my maiden voyage on my Colgate 26 today. My Yamaha 4 stroke 4hp worked great. Pushed the boat right along and was very quiet with minimal vibration. Pretty good for a 50 lb motor pushing a 2600 lb Colgate 26. The level of the gas in the internal tank barely budged. Also, the Colgate 26 was fantastic to sail--was incredibly fast and comfortable. Good combination.
