Honwave t40 ae with 2x outboards

hey guys first post here.

Just bought myself a honda inflatable sib 4m with ali floor.

Also to start out i got the 6hp merc.

i am just starting out so be kind :P all i plan on doing is a bit of fishing here and there out to sea on the calm days with 2 or 3 of us in the boat.

speed isnt an issue so long as it gets us from a - b and back again.

my only thought is can the t40 take an extra outboard as a kicker.

only something small to use incase main outboard fails. i was thinking something like:

ELECTRIC 12 V OUTBOARD ENGINE 55lbs MOTOR dinghy boat saltwater-use Thrust 25kp | eBay


Is the honwave capable of holding the 2 motors on the back. and are the electrics ok to just get you back to shore should your main outboard fail.

any thoughts or other ideas / suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Welcome along.
I've a similar set up with a bit more power though.

Wouldn't of thought putting 2 Outboards on the transom is a good idea, probably won't fit anyway.

I have had a electric OB before and I'm not a fan.

Personally if I was having a AUX OB I would get a small 2 stroke with a internal tank and just leave it in the boat and swap them over if needed.

Going to sea in a 4m solid floor SIB 3 up and with only 6 HP sounds a bit underpowered. Not much love for electric OBs on here either!

Thanks for the replies. Yeh I know it's under powered however I only want to go a couple hundred metres out in a straight line and back to fish. In a couple of months once I get used to boating move up in power to a 10 or 15hp

Then after that who knows :d

The natural market for electric outboards is lake fishing.
Electric outboards are almost noiseless which is very appreciated to avoid disturbing fishes.
Many fishing boats do mount an additional electric outboard on the bow which is used for approaching.

And that's all.

Also, some people use them for mayonnaises. Better than fuel engines, but not as much tasty.

as you have a honwave why not get the lightest engine in it class i.e. the 2.3 4 stroke. we sell them new with 6 years warranty for 570 inc vat and post through the uk ( about 11.00) and 1 litre of fuel on full throttle will last an hour.

2nd hand they are around 350-400 if older than 6 years but there are a lot of ex commercial ones around due to the extra year honda give on their engines.

electrics are v light but no so good when you add the batteries and its another thing to carry...... but there are some good deals out there so though not many peoples first choice if you get a good deal it could be worth a look and you can use it anywhere which is a big bonus.

either way enjoy your honwave

Hi, I have the same boat and as previously stated although the T40 Ae is a great boat if you put two engines on the Transom [Backboard] you will not have a great deal of room. Likewise putting another engine in the boat itself.
Would firstly recommend keeping your engine well serviced and carry some tool's and spares such as spark plugs should you have any minor problems.
Also a good anchor set up and then the oars if you are only going that far out in mild conditions. Knighty

are you mad ? lol
a 4m boat should happily take 25hp use your 6 as the spare

tbf i watched a coupla chaps set an electric one up on a 2.6m boat.. it barely seemed to push them up the avon let alone a tidal position

as for going to sea ,willks has a quality thread somewhere, of the kit he carries deffo worth a look
