    The johnson 4hp long leg twin weighs about 12 kgs a little long in the tooth and getting harder to find but simple and long lasting. it would be feasible to set mounting brackets each side and run 2 motors if the current and headwind were really going hard. There's peace of mind in having a spare.You can get a little charge running a gadget off the flywheel. Just a thought.
