I would take a look at the Copperhead. Their design and customer support has been a bit more proven than Dixie and Swamp Rat. Where are you located?

In Oklahoma, a OB engine <10 HP does not have to be titled/tagged. If that is the same for your state, could be a ($$) consideration.

I have no clue, but have customers running a Copperhead on their EBADS and are very pleased. Just another option to look at?

Bought a 6.5HP Copperhead a couple seasons back, went down with <1 hour on it, took ~6 months to get the parts in and it back to running, sold it the next month, no bueno.
