Re: 4hp outboard motor questions

I had the Honda 2HP and now have the Tohatsu 6HP. The Honda weighs 27 lbs the Tohatsu almost 60lbs. Sounds like the Flying Scott is light, my guess is that you could probably get 5 Knots out of it with the 2HP? Long shaft is good regardless of motor. The gear shift is easier than the 180 reverse but that is a big weight difference. My 2HP Honda was a good bullet proof motor, ran it hard for over 20 years, still ran perfectly when I sold it.
