- Feb 15, 2009Thats 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!
