That makes sense, 4 strokes are quite heavy, although my latest Suzuki 20hp isn't as bad as they used to be.
OMO but the 800 mm between tubes is just right the 46/8 cm tube is at the right height for sitting without the need to stretch the leg out [29 in inside leg].wet ride their all wet if the winds in your face and the sea state choppy but thats part of it getting the briny on your face.
i know i keep banging on about the Ron hale site but its very good for comparing different boats and engine specs i short listed them printed the specs out juggled the engines and made my choice based on a sib that would take on what i was prepared to go out in form experience of my diving days with an engine make that i trust having had five of them.
good luck with your choice let us know what you decide on
