Re: Adding a auxiliary outboard.

don't forget that now you need to keep another fuel tank on board with the requisite plumbing, and you have spent a ton of time and effort to add a 5 hp gas outboard in case your 9 hp diesel conks out.
What if your O/B conks out?
Spend the money you would spend on cobbling together a bastardized O/B solution and buy a couple of spare fuel filters, a Yanmar spares kit, add a bulb to the diesel line to ease in bleeding, and have the tank cleaned.
