My 20' sailboat weighs 1500 lbs - and I motor it around with a 3.5hp outboard. Probably only goes around 5mph max - but I have a high-torque prop on it that limits it's top speed. You figure the math (it's over my head).

The Heron should do fine with the smallest gas engine you can get. Probably still will go fast enough to get in trouble.
