I haven’t collected the boat yet, but I was able to collect the auxiliary power this weekend.
A 6hp Yamaha with tank and fuel line. I am sure 4 or 5hp would be enough for the boat, but as they are all identical in size and weight, I chose the 6 especially as there was such a good deal available at the boat show. Yamaha is supplying the same engine with a grey lid for 2014, so the identical 2013 engine with a white lid ended up being over £300 cheaper….
For power I am planning to use a solar panel with occasional mains top up to start with, so haven’t had the charging coil fitted as the engine will be used for relatively short periods.
