How easy would it be to fit this type of set up.
Thanks for input
a Reckon it may struggle a bit but a 2 stroke will be better than a four, size and weight wise ( also cost wise ).
b Yes, but there are exceptions, your 115 will drag the 5HP like crazy.....don't really reckon you should use this set-up in an emergency. I have a 4HP wing for my 30HP on my 4m SR.
c Should be easy enough with the wee 5HP, maybe not so with an engine that would be more suitable.
Doesn't really help you much does it?
