(Edit: Oops! hehehe...got that bass-ackwards)
I agree with schocksantana, a 10 hp outboard should be more than enough for that boat. A
higher lower pitched prop might be a good idea, but be careful. It's easy to "over-pitch" the prop on little outboards, cause the motor to lug, and damage the motor over the long term. Long-shaft outboards are often (usually?) sold with a higher lower pitched prop since they are usually intended for sailboats or as a "kicker" for larger powerboats.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
