Yamaha has a new 8 HP high-thrust four stroke, available with an extra long shaft for sailboats. A bit pricey, but should be ideal. I had the 9.9 hp four-stroke Yamaha, and I was very pleased with it. I think the 8 is the smallest high-thrust motor available.

I don't even have a boat to hang mine on any more. About every three years I get it out and start it up in a garbage can full of water. It's had the same gas in it for about eight years and still starts on the first or second pull. Now that it's going to be a rare, antique commodity, I might have to buy it some new gas...

Buy a 'nother Seagull,,,,,Spares are still made and a used Seagull re-built or not is still a good buy.

Thierry, to answer your thread's title, I'm afraid there isn't.

But you should be able to build one from spares, I should think. Have a word with John Williams at --

johnwilliams@eoa.ndirect.co.uk

He used to run their spare parts business when they were IN business, and now runs one on his own bat.

The guys around here that are using Yamaha and Honda are having a heck of a time with salt build-up in the water passages. Some of them a very expensive time. Anyone know of a four cycle that lasts in saltwater?

Has anyone tried the rather crude looking air cooled single cylinder diesel outboard distributed by Hardy Diesel? Based on the China diesel. High thrust, ought to be thrifty (along with noisey, shakey and smokey). I think they are at hardydiesel.com
