Hopefully you have received an Email or two on your question... Guess maybe you have purchased your outboard by now for the 13â€™ aluminum boat. My vote would have been the Tohatsu 8hp. at 59lbs â€˜lightâ€™(powerful and reliable). An other way to go would be with a second hand Johnson 15hp at 74lbs--If the hull is qualified for the bigger motor. These particular motors behave like a 10hp until the last 10% of the throttle twist when they â€˜kick inâ€™ that extra 5hp.
Ken, do let us know what you purchased and how it behaves pushing your skiff about the bay.
