...as is the Merc/Mariner Twatsoo 3.3/3.5hp whisk. Available in the UK until a couple of years ago (and probably still available to commercial users). Fits nicely on the transom of an SR4.7/5.4 with A frame.

Not, unfortunately if it's got the military A-frame mounted on the outside.

You won't be surprised to hear that was my other option, I just tripped over the Johnsorude first!

I think some of the Johnnyroods were also re-branded Twatsoo 3.5hp whisks. These are a touch narrower than the old 2-cyl 4hp motors.

I suppose the military boats never break down.

As long as you get a 2 stroke 2/3.3hp (mariner, yamaha suzuki etc) The engine will fit nicely on the side of the main, either on the transom or on a drop aux bracket. 4 Stroke's are a little on the big side and add a good 30kg to the rear. All of my seariders have a 4hp 4 stroke aux fitted to them. The one in the picture is a fixed bracket that came with the boat. I can only half tilt the engine up, but it does the job. My others use an adjustable bracket . Try one of these - NEW outboard engine lowering bracket 30kg max 8-10hp on eBay (end time 07-May-11 08:13:17 BST).
