Re: 4hp outboard motor questions

I bought a slightly used, Nissan 3.5hp two-stroke for my Oday Daysailer. Fuel consumption is spec'd at 1.7 liters per hour at full throttle and I find that to be accurate. Motor has an integral tank that holds 1.4 liters. Weight is 28 pounds. +1 on going with a long shaft motor. More than enough hp for my boat.
