I hope to be changing my engine in a few months time.
Currently I have an Evinrude (BRP) ficht on the back of my 6.5m ocean pro, which while is fine, only manages about 34knots, and I am not sure what to do with it when i take it off! it is good order, with about 600 hours on it.
I think I will go for a 175Hp Etec, No snidy comments about engine Choice either please
I have looked at a 200Hp big block, but they are a little heavy for the transom, so the 175 would probably fit just nicely.....
Apart from the comments of "Bin it" "Scrap it" anybody got any useful suggestions on what to put it on?
I was thinking of something a little smaller than the 6.5M Ocean Pro, but obviously need it to be within the transom limits of what I were to put it on.
I was thinking of something a little easier to launch and recover, and would use it for coastal fishing and just having fun!
