As some of you may know, I have just completed building my 18'6" dive dory.
Now I need a motor. The problem is that they tell you to use between
a 25 and an 80 hp. Jeeez, quite a difference don't you think!
Well, here's my thought. If any of you live reasonably close by to the north bay (Santa Rosa) and have an out board to use, maybe a 40 to 65 hp range, let's go diving and try it out. I am willing to rent it, clean it, and buy the beer! Whatever it takes. I need to pinpoint a hp requirement for this boat. I have gone to every boat shop around and called a dozen more, and none of them will rent motors...Purchase only! (especially for salt water).
after I narrow down the hp requirment, then I will be looking for a good used motor. If any one has any info on that as well I would greatly appreciate it.
