Both are same CC, weight and size, the 2.5 is just a detuned smaller version than it's older 3.5 brother. You know the saying, it's better to have more HP when not needing it than....you know the rest. With a 3.5 you can potter all day long too.

Happy Boating
It,s a Yamaha 4 stroke engine which is 3.2 metres , and we bought new from Pacer Marine.

The rods we have are all the same type and are a tight fit in the pod.2 of us can manhandle the boat but we will get a set of wheels to help transport any distance.I don,t know what it would be like having to lift it onto the roof of a car with the aluminium floor in place. We will be transporting it deflated and once at the site will inflate it and it will be there for the week. cheers Bob

Thanks. If its anything like my quicksilver then the ally floor will be wedged very tight and won't go anywhere when upside down. Was it boat or engine from pacer marine? Else where did you get boat? Thanks

The clip looks impressive at first glance, but im pretty sure its at least 2 different boats, or if it isnt they have invented the first boat with a disappearing motor mount

Probably an advertising gimmick to use the clip to show how strong the material is thats used for all of their boats. The transom ( or engine mount) on our boat is moulded into the 2 side tubes and the floor.Bob

Ha I remember when I had my first boat. That was a round tail with motor mount. Nearly killed me. Had a 3.3 (I think) and a couple of hundred metres away from shallow water the valve decided to let a lot of air out. It then deflated with me stuck in the middle like a sandwich.

Managed to get out and pull the boat to shore via a short swim. Saved the motor and not long after getting it repaired the boat flipped backwards on its own accord when I was sat on the beach and the motor went under once again.

Sold the setup later that week to buy a boat with a real transom

Ha ha. That's funny as you weren't hurt. I hadn't thought of those pitfalls. Nightmare. Very funny image of you like a banana split
