The future is no doubt going to be electric powered. Fossil fuel is going to become increasingly marginalized. If they get something that actually works and is practical going early they may well get...

Pretty unlucky to launch that now. I can't imagine the premium fishing boat market is going to be as buoyant as it has been for a few months yet. I imagine Vexus are in some trouble too, as are the...

I think they were carbed motors, so other than maybe being a little harder to start in the cold possibly it should be fine.

11 will be too much I would think. 9 would be about right. One inch of pitch makes a lot of difference with these little motors.

I'm sure the prop is your problem. As I said, my solas 4 blade 8 pitch would cavitate at anything above idle speed. There are so few props available for these motors it's a bit of a challenge to prop...

I have a 20hp, which is basically the same motor. You're hitting the rev limiter, so the prop is losing grip for some reason. It's either the wrong pitch, the wrong height or damaged in some way. I...

Must be that your trailer's in too deep. If the trailer's at the right depth and you drive it up to the stop, it shouldn't move when you drive it out, whether it's attached to the strap or not,...

I think you'll either need to move the trolling motor, fit one of the TM mounts mentioned above or use another ramp that's not as steep.

Quite agree. I've always been amazed that the boat manufacturers can get away with such obvious engineering flaws. They get away with it with occasionally used garage kept boats, but anything that...

I really wonder how much longer we'll be allowed to use ICE outboards at all. It's a frivelous way to burn dino juice. At some point boats are going to have to start being designed to hold large...

If the boat runs normally otherwise, but is struggling when you try to get on plane or to push the boat up the trailer, it sounds like the prop is cavitating. Odd that it's done the same thing with...

I don't think the spitfire props fit the larger gear case of the 150, which is why people are recommending tempest and rev 4 props.

Running 2 batteries parallel is supposed to be less efficient than wiring them for 24v. I have a parallel 12 system as well. I remember reading that it gave less run time than going 24v, but by how...

I imagine you can get 150 motors pretty easily too. 175 is a low numbers kind of size.

If you mean the older EFI 2 strokes, rather than the current 4 stroke EFI motors, then the fuel usage will be the most significant difference. Those old 2 stroke EFIs were thirsty. The Optimax and...

I have a 20hp suzuki which I've very pleased with, but it had nowhere near the power of my old Yam 25 autolube. A lot of the 20hp models are based on the 10 and 15hp motors, so they don't have the...
