I'm new to boating and have a question/ advice for you seasoned pros. I've been looking to buy a kicker for the 22' Osprey I bought. I've been looking strictly at 4 strokes (9.9hp and 15hp) but a buddy has a great deal on a 15hp 2-stroke/ 10' zodiac combo for about the same price as a used 9.9 4-stroke. The boat came with a 8' dingy and my plan was to paddle to shore when we wanted to stop and explore and have the 4 stroke for trolling. If I bought the 2-stroke/ zodiac combo, I could use to motor for the Zodiac and to troll. I guess my question is if it was up to you, which route would you go? I plan on making regular shore trips... is it worth mixing my gas and switching the motor from the boat to the Zodiac for power to shore? Any advice would be appreciated.
