question about auxillary motor on 4m rib
I recently purchased a 4m avon rib with 30 hp suzuki oil injection 1989. The previous thread about auxillary backup motors has me thinking I should get one. Would a 3.5 hp 2 stroke tohatsu be a good backup motor? It only weighs 27 lbs. Of course this motor would be used for getting out of a bad situation like rocky coast or to counter drift if the main were to go out as well as possibly limping back to port. I imagine this would be a good backup for emergencies, anybody have thoughts on this?
I also posted in the other (previously mentioned) thread this same question but I feel this could use its own topic. Thanks again.
