The dude has killcord issues

Wonder if a lightweight 3.3 would push it?

Great idea, lots of work in that hull and engine mount, respect

Doubt that motor has a killcord fitted from new.3.3 hp would prob push it with a kid aboard. I'd like to try it with my rather light 8hp Yam 2 stroke!

A chap at the sailing club has something similar. It does seem to go well.

I regret selling that to you - it's much better than the 315 I kept!

LOL, it's a great little thing and the engine's been faultless. The girls love it on the river.

That's good to hear - the Johnson is 4hp though - probably why the boat goes so well!

No way! Rofl, thought it was a 2hp

There's no stickers on it. That's made me laugh.
