2 stroke 5 vs. 6hp Outboards
Simple question really, I am just looking for a secondhand outboard for a 3.0m Phoenix SIB (a never used Tender I bought for a now sold Sailing boat), which is rated to a max of 6hp.
However, I have been told that any horsepower advantage with the 6 is robbed as they are usually heavier motors than the 5's - is that correct?
Can anyone offer any insight into this?
Use by the way is mainly on a tidal estuary with the odd foray onto the coastal waters (out of Teignmouth).
