Some anchorages, especially in foreign ports, will require that you travel quite some distance in your dinghy to get to services, like the laundry, groceries, water, etc. If you have a larger outboard on your dinghy, it means that you can make those trips, even in less than ideal conditions, when the wind and tidal currents may be against you. It also means that you may be able to make more trips, like loading groceries or water, in a shorter period of time.
BTW, a real gentleman never kisses and tells... just hints at it.. and leaves everyone speculating.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
