Motors have arrived!

By | October 7, 2011

Very exciting …. motors have arrived! 29hp Yanmars, saildrive legs and Gori three bladed props. Now I just have to work out how to fit them! You can go to bigger motors but considering weight, fuel economy and cost I couldn’t really see the point. These should push it near to hull speed anyway and after all, our last cat had a pair of 9.9 hp outboards. Primary filters, mufflers and the raised exhaust outlets were all part of the deal but I am thinking about adding water traps. Anyone out there with advice is welcome to throw their 10 cents worth into the ring! The other thing we have to work out is how long the cables need to be for each side. Of course we would like to tick off the majority of the fibreglass work before they go in.
