What? I need a new outboard for my CD 26?
I bought a Cape Dory 26 last summer....getting her ready to get back in the water and the boat yard operator tells me my old Honda 15hp is shot.
Near the end of last summer the electric start failed on the Honda, but the pull start worked well, no problems except with the electric start
Now the engine is shot?
"Repairs hovering at about $1000," says the boat yard owner.
"Better look for a new engine", he tells me, but doesnt try to sell me a newone.
Look at a Honda 9.9 at Defender, "best price," he says
"New," he says, "not used."
What about the Tohatsu 9.8 vs. the Honda 9.9?
Long shaft or extra long shaft?
What else do I need to take into consideration?
I sail in Western Long Island Sound, off of City Island>
Any insights would be helpful.
