What can you tell me about OMC saildrives? Are they reliable? How difficult are they to work on in a cramped space? How difficult are they to remove entirely from a Hughes 26? How much of a fire hazard are they? Do you have thoughts on a small diesel alternative?
Is a 9.9 outboard big enough to push a Hughes 26? Would I need a long-shaft 9.9?
