re: Trawler Wanted
FF, Doe's anyone make a small gas engine anymore? Fuel injected- electronically controlled, E-10,E-15, friendly. 75-100hp suitable for a small
tub like mine?
I can't think of any. JohnP
The choice is as close as your favorite junk yard.
As cars are designed to fold up , they are scrapped rather than repaired after a bender.
MY choice would be a Honda , as they still use timing CHAIN , instead of a belt to spin the cam shaft.
At 30 to 70 HP they should run 14 HP per gallon , and easily run 3000 hours.
A real (not old fork lift ) tranny like a Twin Disc would require a modified bell housing and built up torque plate.
Keel cooling and dry stack would be least expensive and allow all weather easy operation.
