Re: someone did it

heavens no I wouldn't be spending that kind of money. I have a brother that owns an outboard sales/repair business here. Plans are to purchase one from him either at cost or buy a used one that he deems in good working condition. I can get a 2005 130hp Yamaha for about 3k but want to make sure that ...

Re: someone did it

I'm leaning more towards leaving the stern wall as is. So anyone have any ideas/guesses as to what hp would be required to get it onto plane?
