Tool, I think your probably right. I've used it with oars and a trolling motor so far and it goes great. I have a 4 hp Johnson I'm rebuilding for it. I don't mind if it's a displacement hull as long as I don't have to row up tide. It was originally a lazer sailboat. The guy from the DEEP, who gave me a new hull ID number, just said to consider it homemade. Cost me 9$ to register it! I'm also going to put a spray dodger on it.
youll find it will go about 7 -8 mph max.....even with a 15 hp on it..... a 6-8 is ideal...as long as you keep it a two stroke...
does your 4 hp have shifter and reverse? I liked the 4 hp I had excpet for the fact you had to turn it around for reverse.... and when you started it...you were going...NO NUETRAL.....thats hectic in rough seas....leaning back to start it and off it goes when it does!!! yikes

If I had to guess... I'd say around 150-200 lbs. I can lift it myself. Its actually for sale right now with a trailer. I ended up picking up a MLB Chuck Huff BBSB at a great price over the summer. Can't wait to use it!
