I agree with Paul that a 2 HP Honda
should be adequate for your Walker Bay. I would also suggest that you consider the 2.5 HP Yamaha 4 stroke
- recent tests established better performance and considerably less noise
than the Honda
. It does weigh about 10 pounds more, but has water cooling
(the reason for less noise), a metal prop, a real transmission
rather than a clutch
and a much more substantial gear/throttle lever and transom attachment bracket/screws than the Honda. It will probably also cost you a few bucks less if you shop around.
