Just got a Honda 2 H.P. for my Grumman square-stern
I have a 17' Grumman square-stern (while my eternal quest for a good used 19' continues). Today I bought a Honda 2 h.p. outboard for it, and am pleasantly surprised by how well it moves along.
At low RPM's, it cruises along very efficiently and quietly. I went for an hour-long "test drive" with my wife, son and dog and didn't burn through the quart of gas in the integral tank.
The engine is air-cooled, and it gets unpleasantly loud at high RPM's. I suspect the fuel efficiency isn't nearly as good there, either.
I need to take along my GPS next time and see exactly how fast it is.
