I don't know the exact weight of the CB but it is definitely < 200 lbs and not a big factor in the ballast of the boat. The ballast is in the stub keel that surrounds the CB trunk.

Like Rob Gallagher suggested, find out if the propulsion from the 7.5 HP engine is a sail drive or direct drive setup.
In either case, I suspect that the 7.5 HP engine is a one lunger (1 cylinder) so make sure that all your fillings are well set in your teeth!
