doubt they much care, given the post you're responding to is over two years old. Please check dates on posts before replying.

I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet.

So when we researched putting a new motor on it we decided to go to a 6hp Tohatsu 4 cylinder which fits nicely into the well. The previous owners had a 9hp engine on it that was way to big for the boat and our thinking was that since the boat can't go above its max hull speed that a 6hp was sufficient.

Hope that helps.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
