Ultimate Voo-doo Setup
I owned one (not that I like certain brand motors) I'd run a European
Yamaha 70C race engine. This 850cc motor rules the V-bottom class in
Europe and the Kilo record is over 90mph. The motor has a small 55 hp
style gearcase. It has a 15" shaft, and turns 8500 + rpm. This
lightweight little dynamo, makes over 100 hp and weighs the same as most
40 hp. Most of these motors can be bought used for about 1500 - 3000
pounds in the UK. Convert that to US$, and you can see what a potent
little boat you would have. Shipping and import duties are not all that
bad, as I have checked into it before. Just some food for thought.
