In the US, ~$150/year gets you unlimited towing up to ~60 miles offshore!

Cracking little engines in 2 stroke guise although getting a little hard to find, especially long shaft. Tohatsu also do a 5hp 2-stroke. Remember to tension it while underway, the tilt lock isn't up to the job, and you're likely to lose it in the briny!

I will second that, you would have thought for what it would cost that they would have but a stainless steel pin in instead of ally Just another thought, not sure what make of rib you have got but check if there is enough room on the transom and if not, you will need to fit an aux bracket.
