Which model? What do you intend to do with it and how fast do you want to go? What manufacturer provides the best service in your area?

I'd recommend reading this page

2.5hp then


I'd go with a 40 but check weights if you're buying a newish engine.

Everyone has pretty much summed up my thoughts on the outboard you need to look for. I'd look for used to save yourself some money. But have it checked out by your local dealer.
