A four horsepower two stroke outboard with forward, neutral, reverse gears. The most reliable outboard i have used to date. The excellent feature of Alpha Dot security was a bonus, every part of the engine is coated in micro dots with a unique number which is registered so it would be hard for thieves to sell on. There was a tool kit provided with spare starting cord, spanners, spark plug spanner, screwdriver. It always started no matter what the weather, has never gone wrong and is simple to use. Has been worth every penny. It looks good on the boat and is quiet in use on tick over it is vitually silent! It performed very well on a 10ft dingy with 4 people in or with 2 and fishing gear.
