The 4hp will get the job done.

The 4hp will get the job done. Before I started keeping my boat at the club, I kept behind my house, where the lake is a fast moving stream. I never had a problem with the 4hp motor.

My 2 1/2 horse Evinrude works well unless there is high wind pushing the hull around. I also have a trolling motor with 36 pounds of thrust and it's great in relatively calm conditions. It's nice to cruise along with no noise. It really isn't as powerful as the outboard.
