Anyone know if there's such a thing as a shop where I'd be able to try out a 5-6HP motor on my Wavewalk?
Or maybe a big brand one in 3HP range to see how it compares to my Chinese one? Maybe a Merc/Honda/Yamaha in that size would have more of the advertised power and suffice? The 5-6HP weigh twice as much, if they're capable of twice the speed I might be OK with the weight.

Found this on Craigslist yesterday for $600. Picked it up in Berryville this morning. I figured since it weighs the same as trolling motor and battery, there shouldn't be an issue. I'm going to put on a carb for the 6HP which is exactly the same other than the carb. New these are twice as much. So much quieter than my Chinese two-stroke POS. And I should be able to run at a trolling speed. My other motor essentially had two speeds, moving (3-3.5mph) and wide open (7-8mph).
