A 5 hp weighs around 60 lbs. , a 2.5 hp weighs around 27 lbs. ... that weight is all the way back in the rear where it has it's greatest effect .

Don't think there's any reason or need to put a 5 hp on your canoe , believe you'll be better off staying with no more than 3.5 hp or less . A canoe can only go so fast before it gets squirrelly .
