Hi Fenlander, this is very helpful. I would lie down the outboard motor on the side in the boot.
I aim to have a second person and a third sometimes. Helpful to know that two works well for 15 or 25HP. If not, can you sit on the seat with an extension on the motor arm?
I am not worried about lifting a 50 or 60 KG motor, so apart from the set up and size of it, once in the water, it is a little more flighty with one person, but not impossible I guess. I wouldn't use it at full speed on my own I wouldn't have thought.
I am thinking of the power on the sea and the You Tube video here:
and that if I don't have a 25HP and am on the sea perhaps crossing to an island before bad whether sets in, I would appreciate this power. I would use it on the sea and the river Thames.
