Re: Soliciting thoughts on a new outboard
The original post mentioned that he has a 1968 CAL 25, that answers the question of whether this is a 25 or a 2-25. The 2-25 did not go into production until the 1977 model year. I agree though that 6-8 HP is more than enough to push one of these old gals through the water. I wouldn't go smaller than 6 HP though, and can not imagine pushing a FLICKA with only 2HP...... I guess it would work, but I know after using a 2 HP on our old CAL 21 ( a LOT lighter and lower-profile than a FLICKA!) a few times to bring her to the dock to install our 4.5 HP outboard........ I knew that I wouldn't want to use the 2hp all the time, even the 4.5hp seemed small a few times powering against wind/current. If it worked for you, I am in awe.
