Murray posted a link for a single engined vessel that lost its transmission. The vessel in question weighs about 36,000 lbs fully loaded. Quite simply it is not a candidate for a 9.9 hp outboard as some suggested, or any other small OB for that matter.

I would make a small wager, to be paid by the loser buying drinks for 4 at the Bar Harbor restaraunt in Ketchikan, that most of the vessels represented on this forum weigh more than 30,000 pounds when geared up.
