Re: Universal M5411 Engine 11HP

As the others have said, the 5411 that was original to the C30 was under powered except at slack and near-slack tide. While it worked, we did have many moments when we wished we had a more powerful engine. Because of that and other issues we had with the 30 YO engine, we bought a new engine.
