Re: picking a new motor for the job!
dude 15 on a 26 footer is way overkill....
youd be served well by a merc 5, johnson 6 2 stroke or similar to keep it simple or whatever but 15 just shows how little some owners know about correct size for their boat and how easily they are pushed into buying that size for their boat 15 is real heavy and awkward for a small 26 footer...
a yammie 8 longshaft would be another max size engine I would look at...
if there is anyway though you can find more info or parts for your current engine that would be good if not then maybe keep it as a spare or sell it for cheap and put it towards a more reliable and parts available engine like the evinrude,johnson, mrecs, hondas, out there
good luck btw
Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!
