Nissan/Tohatsu makes a 6hp 4-stroke in an extra-long shaft now (they call it the "Sail Pro") which is what I went for. The extra-long shaft is perfect off the back end of an Avon Pro so I assume it will also hang well off similar rafts. I agree with all the comments about bigger not necessarily being better for general purpose pushing across flat water by private boaters. 3-6hp ought to be enough. Good luck.
