6.9 outboard

We had a 6hp long shaft and it worked great. You need that long shaft to keep it in the water. We even had problems if weight was shifted to far forward with the prop coming out. As far as drop i think it was 14".

Good Luck

PBzeer Every sailboat I've seen with an outboard had a long shaft. If you're on a lake, without current or tides to deal with, you could probably get by with a 4 horse. Anything you buy new in that size range, will be a 4 stroke. As to drop, I can't say.

s2 6.9 outboard size

I had my 6hp outboard and part of the bracket it was locked to stolen off the back of my s2 6.9. I'm in the process of replacing. I never noticed if it was a long shaft or not Can anyone tell me whether the outboard should be a long or regular shaft. I'm going to keep the OB in the cabin now do you think a smaller 4 hp be enough power and what about a 4 stroke?

Also I have to replace the bracket. does anyone know whether the bracket had a 12 or 14 inch drop? Thanks
