I managed to obtain the air-cooled Zong Shen 6HP Diesel Outboard, and mounted it / rigged up for electric start etc.
However..... its ugly, heavy , and after a summer on the mooring rusty/corroded.
So I think its got to be petrol after all!! ( I can hear I told you so's !!),
From reading this, and various other threads, I believe the following would sum up the advice available.
As big as you can afford/carry .... 15/18hp for 6.3m?
2- Stroke (for simplicity ?)....
Manual Start - its for emergencies
Short Shaft ( I've got a transom bracket which will suit this!)
Any comments or suggestions welcome
P.S. anyone want a cheap 62.5Kg chinese deep water mooring??
