    Oh dear! That's a lot of responsibility on my shoulders.
    No, you'll be fine it is a lot easier than a petrol outboard, I wouldn't go back (unless someone nicks it)

    Haha! Don't worry ... I don't know where you live! I bought it for the light weight mostly but it will be nice to have something that isn't mucky every time you want to stow it! The Yamaha 4, which lived on a bracket in the engine room, was a hell of a job to shove up through the hatch and drag out to the dinghy, about 27 kilos ... this one comes in 3 easily connectible pieces, the heaviest being 9 kilos. Perfect!

    I have a Talamex 2.7 with a Toqeedo. Excellent combination. Not fast but easy to store, no petrol fumes and very easy to mount on dinghy.
    If I give the impression that I know what I am talking about, don't be fooled!

    Folks apologies for a later reply and thank you for all your advise. Unfortunately my father suffered a brain haemorrhage in early June and that put most of our boating plans on the backburner this summer. I'll be re-visiting the outboard purchase again in the new year and will keep all posted!

    Sorry to hear this. Hope your father is recovering?
