A 6 will do the job well enough. As it won't cavitate as much as a transom hung motor the compromise in HP for weight savings is likely worth it. Just be certain to apply antifouling paint to the outboard's leg and prop so as to limit growth and drag. Frankly, I bet most Quicksteps have outboards smaller than an 8.
