Hi the,Ok, I've been lurking for a bit and I've been doing a ton of reading but I'm now stuck.
I have the bug to build an electric outboard for a project solar pontoon. The donor outboard is a 55 hp mercury with a thrown rod.
I'm Eyeballing two motors on ebay pretty hard. But, No amount of googling has provided me with any specs for one of them.
I'm hoping that someone here is a little more familiar and can tell me if I should pull the trigger or keep looking.
I'd pick the second one, D&D, if I were you. You'll have a couple performance points from the description. Looks new. Good price.
You'll not get 55hp, at least not for long. But from the little I know about hull speed, the 5 or 6 hp will push it around.
