Advice required re outboard for Honwave

Hi all.

Noob to all this so looking for advice, thanks in advance.

In process of purchasing Yababdabadoo's Honwave 3.2 IE.

Struggling to find an outboard for it second hand.

Realistically I want to be able to launch the boat solo and obviously if I'm alone don't want to struggle lifting an unmanageable outboard so was thinking of getting a new Tohatsu 6hp 2 stroke short shaft ( I assume I need a short shaft?) for 756

So will this be strong enough? Light enough? But enough poke to get me about? Not going miles out just inshore no more than a mile out if conditions flatish

Incidentally the 5 HP one is lots cheaper.

Details Here

The ideal OB for you would be 10hp... well more likely a 9.8 2-stroke Tohatsu.

6hp is on the edge of will it/won't it plane.

I say a 10 but 15 would be better if you have a greater load... but if always solo and considering portability that Tohatsu 9.8 is the perfect weight vs power.

And just to be clear it's this specific 2007 or earlier Tohatsu 9.8 2-stroke I mean...

Earlier colour... https://syraselle.files.wordpress.co...ohatsu-9-8.jpg

I need to clear some stuff from my man shed (Loft) I have a very usable Tohatsu 9.9, restrictor has been removed, so performs like a 15.

PM Me if so
