I have a 10' Avon
Redseal dingy which I need an ouboard for. Mfg. recomendation is max 4hp. I was looking at 4, 4.5 and 5 hp until I read an article some where that said if you give the motor
to much gas at the the start the Redseal has a tendancy to fold in the middle as the engine
goes down at the stern. I'm wondering if I should really be looking a 3hp? I thought with a little larger engine
we could get it to plane but it sounds like the Redseal is more of a displacement
dingy. I do have the floorboards but am missing the stringers. Anyway, has anyone out there had experience with the Avon
Redseal and might enlighten me as to what HP outboard
I should buy for it?
Thanks for your help!
