Just came off the www.iboats.com site after doing a little further
research on my boat,...it is a 1973 Sea Nymph 14R Big Water. Still
don't know why anyone would put a small 9.5 hp motor on a boat that is rated for a 25 hp motor! I still think an 18 hp Evinrude or Johnson motor would move that boat down the lake quite well,...don't need the full 25 hp.
Keeping my eye out on www.smalloutboards.com(AFA Marine) for a 1973
model 18 horse Johnny or 'Rude motor. Screw the EPA,...two strokes forever!
Cool. The 15's are decent motors too.The upgrade has yet to take place,...but it will happen before you know it!
I like Johnsons,... so I'll stick with them and keep my eyes open for a 25 HP
motor made between 1973 to 1979,maybe newer than that if the price is right!
Some lakes ( White Rock Lake in Dallas and Lake Jennings in San Diego, There are oyhers) have a 10 hp max.
Welcome aboard Salty - nice to have you with us.hey guys im new to the club, and i was wondering if anybody ever put a 40 jet foot outboard on a 14.5 jon boat, or anything like thaat?
