I had a 2HP Honda for a number of years. Great little motor,
ran it hard, no problems, but it did vibrate more than my
6HP 2 stroke Evinrude which weighed about 45 lbs,IIRC.
I had the Honda on a 10 foot aluminum pram type hull.
It wouldn't plane but with 2 people aboard it was more than
adequate against current and chop.
