i'm wondering if any of the internal combustion guys on the PB forum would have any thoughts on a lightweight outboard maybe 2-3HP that could be used on a canoe or small skiff. mostly a canoe.
i'm looking for something that might be used at the end of canoe trip on rivers such as, for example, beaver creek, where the current pretty much turns into a lake on the flats and there are dozens and dozens of mile of oxbows.
something that wouldn't weigh too much and be easy to carry.
i've heard that the air cooled motors are much lighter. but, how much nosier are they?
i don't think i'd want to go electric as i've heard they go through a battery pretty quick.
any thoughts would be appreciated.
