Outboard Advice - 2hp ish looking to buy
Mummy is apparently after a little outboard for Christmas, to power her sailing dinghy on those windless days fighting the tide back up the river thames.
Obviously it needs to be as small and light as possible, so we are looking at the sort of 2.2hp - 2.5hp engines (plenty of power for her boat).
Dad has found that Suzuki, Tohatsu, Mariner, and Yamaha are all within about a tenner of each other price wise, so does anybody have any thoughts as to which we should be looking at for the baby engine market (or another manufacturer if appropriate)
We have decided against an electric motor for convenience.
Theoretically Dad is thinking of a new engine, but if anyone had a suitable nearly newish jobby, we would be prepared to consider that.
Mother dearest isn't hugely strong, and isn't even slightly technically minded, so the simpler the better, and the lighter the better.
