Hi can anyone tell me if a 2 stroke 30hp yam would have enough power for my sr4? Any advise gratefully received

Thanks

Jon

It'll push it ok. Won't be dazzling though.

If you want exciting performance get a 40 or 50. Used to get 33kts WOT and great hole shot (almost instantly up on the plane) with my old 40 2s.
It will be interesting to see how the new 50 4s compares once its on and rigged.

Thanks for the help, I think I'll wait for a 40 or 50 to come up

Cheers

Last week I was offered a yam 40 2s to replace my old broken one, I think it was 900. PeterM has the sellers contact details if you are interested.

Getting one in decent condition is half the battle. These medium hp engines, especially in 2-stroke guise, long-shaft are always in demand. The Yammie 40V or 50G models (3 cylinder models) are the ones to look for.

Couple of 4-strokes here: http://www.seamarknunn.co.uk/download/usedob/used.pdf
