Outboard choice for single handing.

Also a Outboard size question. I have a Aluminium Hulled RIB on order, is about 32 KG.
Mother vessel has davits has carried a smaller Walker bay also 32Kg and a 2 hp Yamaha 2/Stroke ~ 11Kg, no O/B davit and difficult to conceive one.

Am single handing mostly, so that raises all kinds of outboard handling issues as in open water do not want extra weight on davits as they are not at all strong for dynamic loads.
So choice is something around 6HP and 26Kg 2/Stke so I can plane on my own.


3.5HP and 13.5Kg 2/S, so I can handle easier

Prefer 2 stroke. Oh and I'm about 95Kg.

Probably get both eventually, but which one first, or other opinion welcome.
Roughly 1 Kg = 2.2 Lb.
