Re: Can someone help me out with the dimensions of the outboard well of a Bristol 27?

I have a Yammy 9.9 long shaft stuffed into the outboard locker and it fits just fine. Have heard from other b27 owners with the Yammy 9.9's so it can be done. Plenty of room above the engine too.

Very little room to use the motor to steer because it cannot rotate much. My Yammy is 1986 version. It has electric start so is pretty heavy. About 90#. I use the boom and a vang to lower it from the dock into the hole.
