Aquabug on a sidemount on my 17' Grumman Canoe. It was very reliable, lightweight, and efficient. On flat water it might reach 8 mph, and wasn't tippy even when turning at speed. I often wished I had a few more hp though, because with a good headwind, it had trouble keeping up. A 3 hp would have been perfect, if it wasn't too heavy (they were 2-strokes). Unfortunately, the company went out of business in the late 1980's. I would try for a 3 hp, if you can find one under 25#, but even that will limit your freeboard.
