What size dory?
Does it have an outboard motor well ?
If it does have a well why would you need it to turn when you have a rudder?

Slowpoke—

More information, rather than less, is generally going to result in better answers.... Is it a FOUR-STROKE 9.8 HP Tohatsu or a TWO-STROKE? What cape dory boat are we talking about? Is it in a well or transom mounted?

Not mentioning these specifics makes the question unanswerable...

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.

its a 25 cape dory, i have a 20 year old 8hp honda 4 stroke on it now, it works fine but will only turn 2 inches each way and the exhaust fumes in the well will shut the motor down if i close the hatch , because it does not exhaust through the prop.i am interested in a 9.8 4 stroke or 6 hp 4 stroke. has any one used one of these motors?

IIRC, the outboard well on the CD25 is about 8" x 12". Most four-stroke engines are going to have trouble with a well that small, and few will turn. The 8 HP you've got is about the largest four-stroke that will fit.

The head on the 9.8 Tohatsu four-stroke, according to this year's model dimensions is 14.4" wide... so I doubt it will fit, much less turn. The four-stroke engines are typically much larger than their two-stroke counterparts, and much heavier. The CD25 outboard well was designed with a two-stroke motor in mind.

Final sail

My Dad Reggie Richardson ie slowpoke has made his last sail on this earth. I will sail on without his body, but I think a part of him will be with me always. I Love you Dad wherever you are
