Reliable Dinghy Motor
Honda 5 HP BF5

This little 5-horse, 4-stroke engine works great as a kicker for your dinghy or a trolling motor for fishing. You’ll get between 3-5 MPH on a 10-foot boat, depending on the weight. While it has a built-in tank, there’s an option to connect an external too. Even though it’s not the quietest engine, it’s  a lightweight outboard motor with a price tag that you can bare comfortably over a few years.
