Outboard motor for dingy

I agree with camaraderie. You need a 10HP to plane with two adults. We have a 9.8 Nissan which I believe is made by Tohatsu. It weighs 65 Lbs. and it is the lightest one out there for its HP. We have had it for two years. It started on the second pull out of the box and continies to do so.

We have a 10''6" Porta-Bote which they say can handle a 5HP engine that weighs up to 44 pounds (20 kilos). The only engines that would fit within those parameters were 2 strokes. We found a good used Force 4HP 2 stroke which weighs 38 pounds (about 17.5 kilos).

I will second the recommendation of Tohatsu. I have had one for about nine years that continues to start on the second pull. (knock on wood) They are also wonderful people to deal with if you have questions or need anything. They answer their e-mails promptly!
