9.9 long shaft on 15' boat

Post by Lamar » Sat Jan 07, 2006 11:48 am

Hello to all. My question is...I have a 26' sailboat with a 9.9 longshaft, hung from the transom. I'm thinking of building a boat (maybe a D15 or OB15) Could I enterchange this motor between boats? In the future, I could consider a new shortshaft with a motormount on the sailboat that would lower it. The 9.9 (max I can use on the sailboat) might be too small on the boats I'm looking at. In short, my goal is, two boats, one motor. Is this attainable? :doh: Thanks.

Aparently the D15 will plane with the 9.9 motor, not sure it would be much fun transferring from one to the other but doable I wonder if the 9.9 is a high thrust moter, would you need to change props too to get the boat up on plane?

Look at the GV 11, a 9.9 is plenty of power.

Thank you for the replies. Daddy, I hadn't thought of the prop change as I bet it is a high thrust. The G 11 is a nice boat Chase. I have some more thinking to do now. Maybe build what I want, and up grade the motor later. :roll:
