Thanks for all the input. I guess I am going to have to go for the extra weight and cost

Thanks JK for the "relocation service" Have just researched the Tohatsu/Nissan 9.8 and it is only 82lbs. I guess I can live with that. Cost is another $700 ( $1965 inc. shipping and no tax.) over the 6 hp but I guess I can live with that too.
Thanks for all the input everyone.

I want a 4 stroke as I have an EFI Merc. main engine and therefore I will not need to mess around with pre-mix fuel. The best deal in the US is the Nissan/Tohatsu 6 hp. @ $1250.00. Tiller with pull start and XL shaft. It only weighs 59 lbs. and is black so it will match the Merc. I know this may be a bit marginal if punching into heavy seas/tide but it will certainly allow the boat to achieve displacement hull speed. Does anyone have experience of a similar set up?
Thanks T.
I've got a 15 hp 2st aux on my 6.5 m and get 8 knts

Its a pull start and has a separate tank on deck to give 100% back up if that’s possible
