My Quickstep came with an 8hp 2 stroke Yamaha. I replaced it with an 8hp 4 stroke Honda. The extra weight makes the stern sit low. It's not the end of the world, but if I had it to do again, weight would be more of a factor in my selection. Both the Yamaha and Honda indluded a charging circuit, but neither had electric start. The electric start seems like a nice feature, but adds yet more weight.
