Marina 25hp 2 stroke 2001 - what does it weigh?

Hey guys,

sorry for another pop quizz question and I do google them first lol but does anyone have a rough idea of what this thing weighs?

Its on a zodiac futura airdeck so I'm wondering if i can manhandle the whole package, as I know the zodiac's are not the lightest out there.

Thanks

Is it a 2 stroke yeah, I suppose it must be at that weight.

Are you okay loading it on your boat? I hear the 50KG mark is about the max for a portable outboard

yes its 2 stroke and yes its probably the max you want to handle on your own its more a combo of the awkard shape and weight
i tend to keep everthything close to the boot when setting up/ stripping down

RIBase
Three things seem to hold true about SIBs

1. Your dream engine will be too heavy to carry with ease

2. You will need a Bravo pump

3. If you don't deal with 1 and 2, you will buy a trailer...


willk's Paradox states that by trying to get the most performance from a SIB, you will ultimately replace it with a RIB.


This is why there are RIBs...
