Hi Ralph
I bought a Yamaha which is very quiet and only 27kg so not too bad. Found it stops me turning hard to starboard when I was in the wee harbour just to the north of Kirkcaldy. Collided with every boat moored trying to get back out. Nightmare. Now plan to mount it onto a rail between my seats and put it over the back when required as it is fine when the main engine is up. I'm making a cover so that at least I won't have to wash the salt off it. Not ideal but it's there as a last resort if the main dies.
