Hi all,
I have two questions:
1. Would it be blasphemy to put a new Honda or Suzuki on my 1955 Deluxe Runabout?
I have a 1984 Mercury 25 on it now that has just lost its lower unit. I don't really want to put that much money into an old motor.
2. If I did put a new Honda or Suzuki on this boat, what would the max horsepower be? According to the catalog here, it was rated for a 40 HP (at the engine, not the prop). The Merc 25 gets it to 18-19 knots or so with two people in the front seat. It has all that aluminium reinforcing in the stern.
