I've only seen the SkiBo with a 20 inch transom. That means a lot of modern motors would fit.

The Merc is a racing motor and designed to have the prop run half out of the water.

I'm sure it is going to be popular in the race circuit.

www.tohatsu.com/outboards/mfs60a.html

Tohatsu sells a 60 hp short shaft 4 stroke too. 213 lbs Vs 268 lbs for the Merc.

Both have tilt and trim. 3 cylinder Vs 4 cylinder for the Merc.

It is great to see Merc staying in the short transom game.
