and here is the USED Twice 2016 Outboard motor, obviously as new.

 

The racing guys have a 2.5hp often which will just about get them down the river !! They only just get deep enough in the water..but struggle to get back against any tide.. often to be pulled in..

THIS engine give serious proper cruising ability and will punch her home against some slop as well as some tide ..very nice.. at gentle revs sliding along at 4 knots..it is quiet and surprisingly economical..

it will give her a good solid 5-6 knots and possibly more

ashore, note tiller cover..

Stunning shape to these timeless classics. sail like a dream, and can cover great distances cruising ..
