Having added one of those great Gary King inflatable's I am now figuring out which outboard we want to run. (8ft.6 Seward Sport Boat)
I'm sure some of you have real world experience, and I would appreciate some insite!
We are cruisers, always in the salt. I don't need to water ski behind the tender so speed is not a Big issue. I don't even need to get up on step, ploding is fine. I would like to stay with a big 3 manafacturer (Honda Yamaha Zuzuki).
The big consideration for me is quiet, silly as that may seem. Stats never tell the real story so help me out.
