You never know

A guy turned up in the marina yesterday in this old timber X trawler (fishing boat conversion)

He had travelled down from the Town of 1770 .

Thats not so bad but he didn't have a main engine his propulsion was an old 25 HP outboard* strapped to his duck board.

This is a trip of about 150 Nm of which approx 100 is open ocean

RE: You never know

What kind of speed was he able to acheive with a 25 h.p. outboard?

The reason for asking is I have an old barge motor outboard At 25 h.p. thinking of using it for trolling.

RE: You never know

Many boats under 30 ft used for fishing in the PNW have kicker/small out board motors off the stern as the main engine/prop go to fast for trolling*and for a back up engine.* I use a 4 HP on the run about as the 140 HP is to fast to troll.* So having a smaller engine on the back of a boat is common in the PNW.*

RE: You never know

Guys I'll check on those points.
Steve I agree with you on her basic lines.
Depends on how the hull shapes up I think he is going to do her up for a live aboard.
It looked like she had not been out of the water for a long time so will wait for another day or so and maybe we can smell worms.
If not she may be a bit OK.
