Ideal Motor and Motor Mount
I am in the process of buying a motor and I am planning on purchasing from FS the newer motor mount. I am looking for a 2.5 hp as it seems the right size for the FS. I have had great experiences with Nissan both for a 9 hp and a 6. I currently have a 6 but it is to much (heavy) for the boat. I see the suzuki and honda weight about 30 pounds, 10 less than others. I have also read that some sailers have had problems popping their engines up out of the water while sailing due to the FS motor mount. I was hoping to get input on the best way to go before making the purchases. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
