1976 Nowak & Williams Outboard?

Recently, My Father purchased a 18' 2" Nowak & Williams Catboat. I have seen the specs on The Catboat Assoc. website, but I can't really zoom in enough to tell how many horses they had pushing this boat originaly. If anyone can tell me what size motor they came with back in 76, I would be very appreciative.

Hull speed of Nowak & Williams Catboat

Hi there,
My husband and I sail a Tillosten/Pearson built 18' HA Catboat which is similar to what the Nowak & Williams built. The hull speed of the boat is 4.5. 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.
