Smallest elec start o/b?

I'm looking for the smallest electric start outboard which is short shaft and tiller steered. Its for my mothers 4m tender as she has great difficulty pull starting the engine these days. I've had a look around and can see a Tohatsu at 8hp which is fine, but the smaller (and cheaper) the better. the dinghy is rated up to 10hp.

Any thoughts?

Cheers
Keith

A Tohatsu 6 HP, 2 strokes, the same as it's bigger brother 8 HP, probably cost a little less than the 8 model, or the Tohatsu 8 HP, 4 strokes model, the 6 is manual.

Happy Sibbing
