In the summer I spend a lot of time running an inflatable to different beaches. Once there in order to get the boat above high tide I need to take the outboard off. Right now I'm using an older 25hp Suzuki which I love but weighs a ton and a half. As I get older it seems to be getting heavier. It's also way more power than I need and I rarely run it much above idle. I'd like to switch to a lighter outboard and am thinking 15hp would be more than adequate. I've got a couple of 15hp suzukis that I use as kickers but they are also pretty heavy. Does anyone use a 15hp outboard that they think of as "light?" Obviously I want to stick with a 2 stroke.
