  1. ah its a honda 9.9 outboard
  2. hi my engine is busted . does anyone know a boat engineer around the area. help would be much appreciated.
  3. na boat is moving every 2 weeks i was cruising for 2 hours before this happened. found a engineer so gonna take it to him. thanks for the help always appreciative
  4. its a honda 9.9 short shaft. older model to be honest im no good with this kind of thing does anybody know an engineer who would come out to me? boat is currently moored in tottenham hale.
  5. hi thanks for ur reply and help. any chance of a photo of the thing i need to take off n blow? been lookin on google but still not sure. sorry.
  6. hi. im haveing a problem with my honda 9.9 outboard on my boat. it fires up ok but as soon as i push the throttle above a quarter of the way forward or back it looses revs and stalls. the problem arose when a friend of mine was driving and instead of gently putting it in reverse . rammed the throttle all the way back. since then its got so little revs i cannot even move the boat. any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
  7. im geting mixed opinions with regards to hp. i understand pretty much any hp will push the boat i just want the thing to stop. im going to use the boat as a canal cruiser. only 1 canal. the lenght height and draft are fine for what i need it for. i understand it will not go down alot of canals . obv iv not made my mind up full about hp yet . i was just meeting in the middle of peoples opinions. i will def not be getting over 30 hp that i now know. thanks again everyone
  8. thanks i cant believe iv recieved so much info/help i really appreciate it. im using this boat on 1 stretch of canal/river only. as i work in london. i dont plan on going anywhere else iv been up and down this canal all year and know it well. the ply on the transom is a great idea. i will def do that. i was going to fit a bracket then sit outboard on it. i really appreciate the picture and info thanks wayne. i think im now more inclinded to go for a 30 hp will also weigh less . the boat was cheap 1500 and is in great nick inside and out(except for not having a engine). so for sticking a few extra grand on it i think its well worth it.
  9. thanks for replys so far i feel im getting somewhere now
  10. i hv seen a boat wider and longer with a 15 hp on it but a friend has a 30 ft with twin 50 hp so im gettin confused
  11. hi iv bought a 40 ft by 9ft cruiser it needs an outboard on bk as there is no engine. im thinking 50-70 hp only for use on canal.needs controlls stearing petrol tank battery etc. iv found a speed boat for sale near my boat with 60 hp engine long shaft and im wondering if i can take engine and controlls steering etc of that and put onto my boat ? will this work? please help
