When it comes to outboard motors there is a massive selection to choose from. But we have tried to narrow it down for you. The rule of thumb is based on weight alone, and says you should have between 25 and 40 kg of weight for each horsepower. For example, a 5,000-pound boat could have an engine with between 125 and 200 horsepower.
