No no no no no too heavy!

Stick to buying a nice second hand package with a 2st on the back 15hp is nice as around 36kg a 10hp 2st will be the same weight!

I have an Excel 330 for sale if you want to save 300 off the new price.

Details here with lots of photos
Excel SD 330 SIB Inflatable Air Deck

I've had 20 mph with my 9.8 with a light load on calm water and that is scary fast.

My 9.8hp is 26kg contradictary to Nicks post.

>>>My 9.8hp is 26kg contradictary to Nicks post

That's because the 9.8 Tohatsu is unique in the 10hp class in that it is a high output version of the 6/8hp versions weighing the same as them.

All the other makers based their 10hp models on the 15hp which meant they were just as heavy as a 15hp.

Tohatsu stretch this even more in that they do a 9.9 as well and that is the same outboard as their 15 and 18hp models so no-one with any sense would buy the 9.9 when they are effectively carrying the same weight as a model with almost double the power.

I have an excel SL260 and 5hp engine and can recommend the excel. The reason i have the super light SL260 is because i have to be able to manage both the sib and the outboard on my own in and out of a garage on my motorhome and I am 70. If i could handle a heavier SIB i would. I am only ever in it on my own and i use it inland and off shore (weather permitting) for fishing, photography and just getting about.
I have located a second seat nearer to the engine as the first fixed seat is ideally located for rowing. When sat on the second seat the SIB with the 5hp 4 stroke Vector engine planes and fair zips along.
Good look with yours

Ullswater, found lots of secluded beaches to stop and fish, take photographs or simply cruise up and down.
I stay in my motorhome at "waterside House" campsite next to waters edge where there is a small slipway to launch from with my "manual" trolley and there is also 2 larger slipways for bigger SIBS, RIBS and boats where vehicles reverse to launch from larger trailers.
The site is "seasonal" which is sad because i would like to go all year round but as I am an "old giffer" and have to manage my inflatable and engine on and off my motorhome i need to be at waters edge or very near.
