Stay with a 6. A 4 stroke is a bit less powerful but heavier, It is plenty enough for a Piper. I have a 4 hp 2 stroke which is the bare minimum I would recommend.

My sandpiper has the original outboard, a 6hp Evinrude 2 stroke.

What is an adequate sized engine? Does it need a 6hp or will a smaller one work?
Any and all experience and insight is welcome.
