The boat: a 40 foot fiberglass
and carbon fiber proa, quite lightweight. Schooner rig, unstayed masts, wishbone booms.
I need an outboard
for light wind
conditions and maneuvering in marinas
. Looks like I'm having to settle for a gasoline outboard
What horsepower rating should I be interested in? Moving fast on motor
power alone will never be the goal, unless, I suppose, I'm trying to outrun a squall. In which case I'm sure I'll wish I had a rocket strapped to the bridge deck
5 hp? 10? More?
