yamaha 8 hp enduro outboard.

Dear friends,

Can anyone please tell me if a Yamaha 8hp enduro 2001 model is of enough power and to use as an auxiliary engine in an emergency to push an 18 foot ranieri pathfinder with a main engine of a yamaha 140hp v4 two stroke?

Ive been told that such an 8hp enduro have some good torque to fit the job.

Thanks in advance for all the info,

It'll be fine-my 8hp (not an enduro, an 8C) Yamaha pushes my 26' rib with a 225hp on at 5 knots.
