You're doing a beautiful job so far, so you really screwed up, now everyone's expecting perfection throughout the build. Are you planning on 2 drains running aft into the cockpit, and did you make the inner lip of the gutter a little lower for a gasket? Keep up the nice work. Mike

Oh that is the blessing and curse of being a carpenter/craftsman I reckon. Yes I bought some 25 mm PVC from local store to run wiring and make the drains I was gonna just copy the way you did yours. Drains are 1" square and I recessed the inside lip 7/16 for double layer of ply and gasket that I use here in Japan.

Good looking motor! People that own Honda love theirs.


We use a 5hp Coleman on a square back canoe. For flushing I sink it down into a 5 gallon bucket. IDLE ONLY! But I let it run in the bucket with the garden hose still running till I feel the pee hole water getting warm.

Frank I have a Honda 5hp that looks just like your motor. I think yours is a single cylinder also. If so just to let you know mine shakes pretty hard up to about 1/3 throttle. Above that speed it smooths out and runs well. This info is just so you expect it and do not think something is wrong.

I will keep that in mind Fuzz thanks for the heads up.
