SIB Outboard Questions

I am hoping to get a SIB in the next couple of weeks, got around 350 to get a sib & outboard. Probably going for something around the 3m mark capable of 10-15HP.

1). What are the approx weights of 4HP, 6HP, 8HP, 10HP & 15HP 2 stroke outboards?

2). Whats the best 2 stroke outboard to go for, probably going to be quite old, seen alot of johnstons, yamaha, mercurys. Whats the best or most reliable?

Thanks
Richard

Bottom must have really fallen out the boat market if you can get a 3m sib and running engine for 350.

yeah been watching some on ebay, saw a 3.1m zodiac with a yamaha stroke 4hp go for around 350, also saw a YAM330 with a Yamaha 4hp stroke go for around 350. Also saw a bombard tropik 3m with a 4hp go for around 275. Granted alot of these are quite old boats and engine, but will do what i want them to do.
