Small outboard suggestions needed

HI, i use a walker bay 8ft to reach my rib although only a 100 meters or so the tidal strength can be challenging so am looking at Honda 2.3 which seems amazingly light would wish to take on board the rib rather than leave on tender as this area is popular with boat thieves . Any members with experience of similar please comments all replies answered

Not specifically the answer you're hoping for but more a separate thought, which is would it be worth considering an outboard that will also work as an auxiliary on your rib? Thus easy to stow and serving a duel purpose?

We used to carry our Avon Redcrest with a little Yamaha 2hp two stroke outboard on our Avon Adventure 6.2 as a tender (and still use the same combo on our sailing yacht as the easily storable tender/engine).

We had no issues taking the entire Redcrest and outboard onto the RIB - the outboard stowed nicely in the rear bench seat, and the Redcrest on the foredeck in it's bag.
