Out board power for bo jest

Post by Paul665 » Tue Feb 19, 2019 6:37 pm

Hi I have just completed building a stretched bo jest to 20 feet.
I live in Bega NSW in Australia..... that's right Down under.......

I would like to hear from any one regarding powering my bo jest. I have noticed a few 9.5 hp out boards on the back of a few bo jest's I think that' s under powered for down under so I am looking at a 40hp 3 cylinder four stroke 750 cc.

Can any one make a few coments of my thoughts

:D Got any pics of the Bo?I'm going with a high thrust Yamaha 9.8 4 stroke on mine.Don't think I'll be waterskiing behind-just poking around all the inlets on the lake.fuel economy is a priority for me,not going faster. :D

If you look in the Glen-L build archives,There is a Bo-Jest built by Bob Trygg of Duluth,Mn that appears to have a 30 hp 4 stroke Honda and little kicker besides.Good looking set-up.I'm thinking on getting a 2-1/2 for back up. :D
