As noted, the Tohatsu 9.8 two stroke is ideal but hard to find.
Anything smaller than around 10HP is going to be more of a maneuvering thruster than an auxiliary drive, the bare minimum would be a 5HP in my opinion.
In any event having a good anchor and some basic spares is always a good plan.
For info, the four stroke Tohatsu 9.8 is the same weight as the 8 = 39kg
