    Hey All

    Looking for a fast & light outboard for a dux hammerhead tunnel hull inflatable 11'.
    So far the Evinrude 30HP E-TEC 2-Stroke looks most promising @ 156lb?
    Any advice/other contenders? Weight is most important, I'll need to be able to lug the motor up the beach 160lb is what's limiting the HP to 30.

    Total displacement should usually be around 800-1000lb max: 1850lb usual Load: Boat 235, Motor 160/200lb, Fuel 50lb?, People 350lb, other stuff 100lb

    Thanks
    Ryan
