Hi

Bill has seen this engine for sale:

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/p...4167&xreferer=

I would think the Avon needs a short shaft engine. Would the Evinrude be any good?

Cheers

Hi folks

We have a new SIBster....Bill purchased the Avon and it is now at home in his garage.

Jahno, we have not heard from Simonsi yet.

Can any one tell Bill if the Johnson engine seen here :

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/p...4167&xreferer=

Would be suitable for the Avon? Does it need to be a shortshaft engine only?

Cheers

Keith (introuble with Bill's wife) Hart

Looks a bit old and 6Hp is a bit small, I used a 9.9 on the same size of SIB and it was just about right. I would think I will see a better engine for the same sort of price on the 28th.

Thanks John. I've emailed Bill to let him know. Best to wait and look out for something else. There is bound to be something turn up.

Cheers
