OK you've got my attention. How? I would have liked to have known how to do this with my current Mariner. I thought T37chef's point was a good one.
Still I'm a little nervous about Yamaha not showing any small outboards on their website. Makes me wonder about their long term commitment. Although gershel talks about high output Yamaha I suspect this compares to Mercury's Bigfoot which has a larger propeller.
