Re: MacGregor 19 emergency kicker motor

We just bought an 8hp outboard to power different boats (we live on the water) and would like to mount it on the M26 as a kicker. Are there any pictures showing how this is done? It seems the twin rudders make it problematic. check out this link https://www.macgregorsailors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?...

Re: Evinrude leaving the outboard business?

Merc & yam r pretty much the same eng. & use same parts on some models , the newest 4 strokes r much lighter due too smaller engine blocks which usually means less torque , but who knows they may have beat that issue with newer electronic sensors & computer programming My 2007 Merc 75hp 4 stroke has...
