it's the compact one that folds up. I wanted electric
, but I just don't think they are there yet for the pricepoint. I don't want to try to deal with 2 giant batteries
and a wire going over to the motor
Part of the issue is loading/unloading the motor
. I've rigged a harness/pully but I'm leaning towards a 6hp since they are about 55lbs instad of 85 pounds for the 8-10hp range. Since we're in the US the 2 strokes aren't around.
The redneck in me wants the more hp cause well, more hp. But I'm really wondering if in bad weather
the extra weight/struggle with the 8-10hp range and external tank versus lighter weight and the tank in the motor for the 6hp motor.
But I also don't want to constantly wish I had more speed to get back to the boat
at a mooring
field in crappy weather
So, 6hp and much lighter/cheaper? or 10hp and much heavier?
