I would get the option. My tiller has the start button right on the side of the cowling.

I've owned Tohatsu 25 & 40 hp 2-strokes they were outstanding outboards

The closest I can find on G3's web site is a 1442 rated for a 25 hp

1442: dry hull eight 200 lbs

6 gal gas tank: 50 lbs approximately

15 hp Tohatsu: 114.4 lbs

Battery for electric start: 30-40 lbs

Total weight: 404.4 lbs approximately without your weight or any tackle

With a 15 hp I would not look for much speed maybe 15mph
