13-Footer Owners With Auxiliary Engines

Postby Papio » Wed May 12, 2021 5:04 pm

FOR OWNERS OF A 13-FOOTER FROM c.1970 WHO HAVE INSTALLED AN AUXILIARY ENGINE:

Q1: What horsepower main engine were are you using?

Q2: What horsepower auxiliary engine are you using?

Q3: What is the maximum engine size that can be used without harm?

I have a 1971 13-footer with a 25-HP four-stroke-power-cycle engine.

A1: 30.

A2: I have a 2 HP British Seagull I plan to restore, and perhaps take along on my 13.

A3: For main engine? I have seen a 3-cylinder 70 HP classic Evinrude 2-stroke on a Sport (controls). I wouldn't.

I have a 30 HP Evinrude e-Tec on my Standard (tiller). All the motor I ever want on a 13.
