Re: Vire 7 Gas Engine

I think that the Vire is no longer made or supported in the way that Don Moyer supports the Atomic 4 gasoline engine.
My friend who has an O'Day 25', who I call "old man trouble", because he is a good racer uses a 9.9 HP (or less) outboard engine mounted off the transom.
Extra storage space is always a plus even with the relatively big cabin size of the O'Day 25 CB model. You can figure out ways of providing the missing ballast of the engine: water tanks, metal ballast, storage etc.
It is a good boat AND it is trailerable.
