Yeah, he mentioned that. He bought a smaller APEX rib from the dealer on Hayden Island. It's a nice setup that he is going to. This one was too long to fit his 48 ft yacht. He put the 25HP on that. The boat is rated for 40-50HP.
So, I will look for something in that range. But for now I will use my father-in-laws 9HP Johnson, so I can at least do some fishing.
Anywho, I will pick it up in a week or so. Now I need to find a longshaft outboard. There was one on Craigslist last week 1997 40HP with auto trim and tilt. I wish would have snap it up. But the search and configuration is half the fun.
If anyone know of a good deal on a 40 or 50 HP longshaft, remote, electric start. I would be interested.
