Default WTB - 5 HP Outboard motor

Yeah, it's a longshot. But I'd rather buy from someone here than some stooge on Craigslist.

So, I'm building a small boat. Sort of a plywood hydroplane/runabout. And I need something to power it. A 3.5 to 5 HP, outboard.
Will also consider large (35# and up) trolling motors. Let me know what you have, where you're located and how much.
If not willing to ship, it's gotta be in the NE US (NY) or Toronto, Canada area.
Thanks!

Boat wheelies FTW. If you only want 5hp, look at a stock 1.6

Because this thing is tiny. As in, less than 8' long, and well under 90 pounds. Any larger would get me flipped over the second I hit the throttle.
I'd actually consider something up to 10HP, but weight is a consideration as well.
