I just bought one to go on my T38IE, havent tried it out yet though. Ive been using an old Tohatsu 16hp on it which is quite nippy so it should fly with the 25 Yammy !

Honwave arrives tomorrow - secured a 8hp 2 stroke for nothing on a permanent loan - (o it's not stolen) a gift from a friendly uncle to use as long as I want - equipment to get my hands on ... an appropriate anchor (Grapnel in sand is probably the wrong investment) a single flare - fire blanket + extinguisher, bucket for anchor, bilge pump, launch wheels ... jesus etc + etc - this is a rich man's game which I'm not but I'll get there over time........................ bottom line is I can't wait and I probably won't be able to take the 'Enterprise NX01' with an engine capable of warp 8 out until the weekend for 'sea trials' lol - of course if money wasn't an issue - I'd go for all the recommended bangs upon that drum ......... but ...... let's see what's out there -------------- engage!

Great news 8hp would be fine and plenty power for a beginner boat, you'll have loadsa fun with that, sorry could'nt advise on best engine choice as i've only ever tryed a 2hp, a 4hp and a 40hp by tiller, but that was on different sibs to yours, to be honest I found the 40hp with tiller a bit hairy in a chop, the steering/helming of the tiller at speed can become very light, even with 8hp a sudden jolt can knock you and your tiller sideways, so always brace yourself well at speed, a sudden unexpected full lock at speed can cause a violent reaction.
You did'nt mention a Life jacket with your safety gear, certainly well worth considering, I've only mentioned these things because you say your new to boating, so just learn how to handle at low speed for starters pulling up alongside things like buoys and progress from there,
Hope all goes well with your sea trial,
Remember Life Jacket.

Wow that Yamaha 25 2 stroke has got some shove....and he's not even flat out

How much do these weigh? Maybe a bit much for my 2.85m Zodiac though lol

'Dang it' in southern talk so to speak - the shipper (although instruction was given) thought that my baby was to be collected instead of shipped. This means that I need to wait another day or two .... it doesn't really matter given the grand scheme of things ... but I was looking forward to it arriving today. How and Ever - I still can't get to use it 'till the weekend considering the time of year and days getting shorter so they I guess I will stretch my extensive charity in heir direction ... PAX be upon them!, lol (although today I felt like swapping that mid letter for a more colorful hand crafted 'O')

Hi Iamdbat,

I have the same boat as you with a Tohatsu 20hp 4 stroke. Made a video of my Cornwall holiday with it. Around 5 mins in I open her up thought you might be interested to see while you wait!! I think a 25hp 2 stroke would be perfect on the T40, but if you go 4 stoke and want to save a few hundred quid, Tohatsu is worth a look.




Enjoy your boat mate.
