Outboard Motor for 16ft Raft
I know, I know, breaking the silence on the river is never a good idea, but I want to be able to use my raft on lakes too.
I have a Aire Tributary 16ft raft with a DRE four bay frame. I am going to have DRE build me a motor mount but I am having trouble finding info on good motors. I want to be able to push my raft on a lake and on occasion push a few rafts on flat sections of rivers. I assume I need a long shaft motor, but what horsepower is best and also what brand motor is best. I am assuming I will go with a four stroke as two strokes will likely be outlawed in the lifetime of my setup.
Any suggestions on motors and HP's would be greatly appreciated.
