if i get to the point of having to repower i'm considering putting a 25 h.p. mercury bigfoot 4 stroke outboard in the aft lazerrette. i see several advantages to this, the two biggest being no more noise and heat in the main salon and the ability to have no drag when sailing. also, no more packing gland, shaft, ability to pull outboard for servicing other advantages. i think the fuel economy would be about the same and i haul gasoline anyway for fishing. anyone have thoughts on this? anyone tried it??
