Re: 2001 Sport 13 Repower

My insurance agent said he would have no problem insuring the boat with a larger motor on it. I talked with him before I even considered a larger motor. A larger motor might hamper a sale in the future as some have said.

Does anyone have any experiences with repowering a 2001 sport 13/130 with any of the newer 40 hp. four strokes?

2001 Sport 13 Repower

Hello. I want to repower my 2001 Sport 13. It currently has the 2001 40-HP Mercury two-stroke-power-cycle that came with it. I want to upgrade to a four-stroke-power-cycle engine. Ideally, I would like to make it a 50 or 60-HP engine. I will have an extra battery, trolling motor, and other equipment...

Re: 170 Montauk Forward Pedestal Seat Base

The cost is $90 for the painted base and about $140 for the stainless base. [Twin City Marine] offers a backing pl...

Yes jimh, that is correct. The boat is a 2008 50th anniversary model with the normally aspirated Verado block engine.

Re: 2008 Montauk 170 Re-power

Also, the 2008 90 hp 4 stroke had a 2.33:1 gear ratio, so it is close to the same as the new motor. I agree, the 19" will be a good place to start

Re: 2008 Montauk 170 Repower

The new engine will be 35 to 40-lbs lighter. The current 90-HP engine has a Laser II 19-pitch propeller. I am looking for propeller and mounting height advise. I am not so sure the 19-pitch propeller will be what is needed for a 115-HP.
