eherlihy will become famous soon enough
I see from your other thread that the OB stolen was the one that I recommend... that's a real bummer.

If it's any consolation, it should be harder for the thief to register THAT motor. Although, they may just want it for parts.

JoeDiver is on a distinguished road
I have a 5HP Yammy 2 stroker....it's a GREAT little motor, always starts on the first or second pull, runs strong and smooth....just got a new impeller and housing plus a tune up.

It's just a little weak for my C25. It'll push her at 4.5 kts wide open with no wind or chop, but I drop down to 3.2 or so going onto the wind and chop.

I need a little more oompf.....I might be interested in selling you my 5Hp Yammy (1999) if the price is right and I can get me a little Merc 9.9 to replace it.....
