Outboard: Buying, Type & Fitting
Thinking of replacing my 35 year old Yanmar diesel in my GRP custom - built fin keel vessel with outboard 10 - 15hp (4 - stroke).
Secondhand seems to be the way to go.
Anyone have tips to look for when buying used outboard? Tips on fitting, mounting, tanks? Is long shaft necessarily the best for auxillary? Anyone recommend brand? I hear Evinrude, Yamaha, Honda are good.I plan to mount it on outboard bracket.
Eventually I will do coastal cruising when I get enough skill and experience - novice sailor.
Any advice most appreciated.
