Sounds good for getting home in calms, maybe 5 HP to fight wind, waves, and curent. A 9.9 HP would probablly be too heavy on the stern.

I have a Sundance 20, depending on location and conditions, the troller and solid agm batteries will get you in and out of your slip or ramp if you can't sail it in, ie no wind. but not against 15 kt winds or 2 kt currents, A 4 hp outboard will do most anything with this boat, but starts to sink the stern, decrease sailing properties. Think light, small outboard with a internal (on the motor) tank, w a 1 gallon jug for refills.
