I have a Old Town, Discovery Sport, I believe it is 14'. I have ran a 2hp evinrude on it and had more than enough speed. I'am looking for a small outboard that is a jet. I haven't been able to find anything smaller than a 20hp. I have heard there was a motor called a Chief that was something like a 5hp but they stopped production in the 1950's.
I want to use the canoe to run up some shallow rivers where I go moose hunting and Iam afraid the prop and lower unit would just get abused.
