Re: Outboard for Cruising

Ten hp should be adequate. I know of a Triton that does well with an 8 hp, and it's only about 600 lbs less than the Alberg 30.

After the A4 is removed there will be plenty of space to install a 12 gal tank, or even larger. It has to be installed to meet ABYC specs. They don't appear too cumbersome. By the time you buy 4 tanks and the necessary fittings, you could probably buy a permanently installed 12 gal tank for not much more.
You can get some guidance at this link.
