Back up engine

Can anyone recommend a good reliable backup outboard for my 6m Ribeye? - may be needed (hopefully not though) for offshore use. What hp should I go for?

RIBase
Ideally 8hp(ish) and 2 stroke to keep the weight down though 6hp will be ok. I believe Suzuki make quite a light 6hp 4 stroke.

Anything recentish will be reliable enough as long as you run it regularly and keep it serviced.
