At the lower horsepowers, there is quite a bit of variety in outboards. You can get a four-stroke gas-powered model, such as the Tohatsu 5 hp (middle left) or Yamaha 4 hp portable (right). For an almost silent ride, the battery-powered Torqeedo Travel 1003 electric (left) has propulsion comparable to a 3 or 4 hp gas motor. Alternatively, the Lehr 2. 5 hp outboard (middle right) is powered by a camp-stove-style propane tank. Every few years, I like to examine the latest and best options for powering up your dinghy or pocket cruiser. I followed the transition from relatively lightweight but smoky and smelly two-stroke engines to their much heavier but essentially smokeless four-stroke counterparts. Now you have many choices: two-stroke or four-stroke, propane-fueled or electric, and carbureted or fuel-injected. Let’s take a closer look and let you decide. Your range of choices will depend on the size of your dinghy and whether you need to achieve planing speeds. So one question you need to answer is whether planing is important to you. Another important issue is ethanol fuel and the impact it has on outboard engines, especially low-horsepower engines. The fuel does go stale and will tend to absorb water, which ends up settling inside your engine’s carburetor. Additionally, the alcohol in ethanol acts as a solvent and will go a long way toward loosening up any sediment or other contaminants in your fuel system. As a result of water-contaminated fuel, I had to replace the entire carburetor on my three-year-old 3-horsepower four-stroke engine. The mechanic explained the problem quite well: These newer engines are so fuel-efficient that the carburetor jets are much smaller than equivalent-horsepower two-stroke engines of a decade ago. As a result, carburetor jets get plugged up quite easily, so ongoing problems with these engines are not uncommon, and clean fuel is imperative. Be advised that as of this writing, none of the major outboard engine manufacturers recommend any fuel over 10 percent ethanol, so E15 is categorically out. If you are lucky enough to live in a state that still sells no-ethanol fuel, I recommend taking that route, especially with carbureted engines. Conversely, my fuel-injected outboard engine never misses a beat. A new fuel/water separator filter installed annually keeps everything running beautifully. Both Evinrude and Suzuki now offer 15-horsepower electronically fuel-injected engines. Those might address fuel problems, as my experience with fuel-injected outboard engines versus carbureted ones indicates that the fuel-injected units have fewer fuel-system problems. This is probably because the fuel-injected engine’s onboard CPU is programmed to compensate to some degree for minor fuel inequities. Last but not least, Lehr offers a propane fuel option in 2. 5- to 25-horsepower configurations. With these units, you certainly don’t have to worry about clogged carburetors due to ethanol content, but they still have issues. Complaints in online forums question the quality of things like cover latches that break during normal use — a small but annoying matter. , three things stood out on the Lehr 2. 5-horsepower engine: It was noisier than the competition and it vibrated more, but on the plus side, it propelled the test boat faster than comparable motors in its class. By all reports, Lehr’s larger motors are not quite as noisy. Lehr also deserves some special kudos for its electric-start features. better yet, the company has designed the starter utilizing a 2-pound lithium-ion battery that is self-contained in the power head of the engine, eliminating the need for a separate battery that takes up space in an already cramped dinghy. These starters are available on Lehr’s 9. 9-, 15- and 25-horsepower engines, meaning that all but the smallest dinghies could benefit from this feature. Another cool option for Lehr motors of up to 15 horsepower is the ability to use a small camp-stove-style propane bottle that screws right into a recess in the power head. It’s one less thing to take up space in the smaller dinghies that typically use these engines. Weight Matters A profound issue for all outboard engines is the great weight discrepancy between air- and water-polluting two-stroke models and the much more EPA-friendly four-stroke technology. The new four-strokes are typically much heavier. Depending on the specific tender you’re powering, as well as how you intend to store it on the.
