Re: Electric motor for small boat

I went through this for my daughter's Siren 17. Although I love electric, I ended up buying a (used) honda 2.3 longshaft. She could easily start this herself, and it worked flawlessly. Super simple engine..air cooled. Yes, noisy, which is encouragement to sail, not motor. But there were some days when the wind would die entirely, and paddling a 17 foot sailboat just doesn't work.
