Hi,

If it's just the leg, we'll need to know what make & model of engine! You'll probably also need a short cooling water tube and driveshaft (they usually stay attatched to the gearbox). Maybe an exhaust tube depending on the design of the engine.

Sorry I canlt help with parts - I have a spare leg, but it's for a longshaft Suz DT25/30.

I think he's actually after a short shaft outboard not just the leg.

Thanks chaps, i have decided to use my long shaft old yamaha 1970's outboard in my ribeye 330. I will make a fixed jack plate or fixed transom elevator to raise the outboard 6 inches or 15 centimeters.

i am just trying to keep my cavitation plate level with the bottom of my keel.

I think that i could sandwich marine ply in between two quarter inch thick aluminum sheets and through bolt it toghether and fixed to the transom.

Does this sound feasable?

Thanks.

RK - IIRC you weren't bothered about top speed in another post (with another boat?). Because you are stuck in the thames with speed limits etc. In which case you should try the engine with the extra length to see how it goes - you'll loose a few knots and burn a little more fuel - but it will be hassle free.

It's probably a touch heavy and isn't it a longshaft?
