I get the question about why one setup is better than the other and here are a few differences that can help with the determination on which way to go when powering your craft.

1.  Weight: 23lbs vs 30lbs may not sound like a huge difference, but when it comes to balance and mounting this is a huge concern.
2. Portability: The standard outboard is cumbersome and not easily stored out of the way, but for some this limitation does not matter.
3. Vertical and Tiller Adjustment: Standard outboards can adjust transom angles, but little vertical and horizontal tiller arm adjustments is
    common on most standard outboards.
4. Powerhead Changes: All traditional outboards this size are aircooled for the most part, but with the lightweight kayakbuddy version, you
    can swap power heads in minutes.
5. Sound: Aircooled is aircooled. There is not much to deaden the sound outside of a water exit exhaust and the traditional outboard does    
    just that. The exhaust is not really a game changer. Exhaust notes are not 2 stroke loud by any means. Aircooled engines are louder due to
    the construction.
6. Height Adjustment: Traditional outboards are based on standard transom heights and not adjustable like the lighter kayakbuddy
    version, which has over a 10-inch vertical height adjustment segment.
7. Gear Ratios: Both units are comparable, with the KAYAY BUDDYS  version having a 2:1 ratio to utilize the higher rpm range.
