      Thats a mighty big motor to be putting in MoToSkiff! She's designed for
      small, light engines like the about 1 3/4 hp. B&S model A. Sixteen Too
      would better handle the power, and the weight of the batteries. I think 8
      hp. electric would be too much for Sixteen Too, too, for that matter...
      People use electric motor that size for powering pretty sizeable boats!

      A belief which leaves no place for doubt is not a belief; it is
      a superstition. <Jose Bergamin>
