We row a lot, with better oars than the Avon take-downs - Sawyer 6.5 footers. For longer excursions, we sometimes use a 22lb 2hp 2-stroke Mariner (Yamaha, really), with the fiberglass
mount shown. If you can put up with a 2-stroke, that's as light as it gets. Our little motor
is 28 years old and runs like a top.
If I were getting a new 4-stroke motor
, I'd go with a Suzuki 2.5 (30lb). Much quieter than the air-cooled Honda
, and has a neutral gear
which my Mariner does not.
