The 50hp could be used as part of your ground tackle, to supplement a nice mushroom anchor. Let's not discount the usefulness of a large horsepower engine with a boat that size. Just not the original intended use <grin>.

No, I have not done any research on the hybrid conversion. I am going with a 4 stroke 9.9 outboard. Does anyone have any information on the Parsons or Sky outboard motors? My friend Kevin says they are a Chinese knock off of the Yamaha engine and that the parts are interchangeable. The price is quite a bit less than the Yamaha so I guess the quality is quite a bit lower than the Yamaha. There are no dealers in the state of Hawaii that I can locate on the internet, so if I buy one it will be direct from the company via the internet. If you have any information I would greatly appreciate it before I put down the cash that it will cost for a new outboard.

You might want to find out from other Sailnetters if they have had any reliability issues with them. The times you use your engine can be the times you really need it to work.
