Hi Doctor, I've got this problem.
I've an Avon 310 hard hull, that we use as a tender with a small puttputt on the back.
Now summers here, been thinking of buying a bigger outboard to put a grin on my face.
This Avon is plated for an outboard up to 10 Hp.
Now depending who you talk to, if you want it to plane two up and tow a ringo, some say
10HP others 8 Hp, not too much difference on new price or weight.
Now if I like this ribbing lark, and get a big toy, what would be a good size engine to use as an auxillary? 6, 8, 10 Hp. Short shaft.
You can leave the white coat off in this weather.
