Don't Bukh market under a different name , Westebeke maybe, in the US ?
That said ....8 hp ???????? Surely that's a mistype.
Nope, she is a one lunger 8hp and pushes a 36' 10500lb boat at 5.5knts... without the saildrive it would take a 16hp to get the same result... whats really cool is i can easily wrap the lawn mower cord around it, give it a pull and she fires up, without a battery... i think i used 5 gallons of fuel last summer.......
