I found a 1975 Sabb G 10hp engine for sale locally and was wondering about this engine and what possible boat designs that would be suitable. I ideally I would like a double-ender with a large pilot house for minimalist overnight trips. I read the manual and was somewhat overwhelmed by all the scheduled maintenance required and how much room this takes. I'm not a mechanic but it almost looks like I need to be one. Are parts still available for this? I'm confused about the control knobs. Does the engine have to be within reach of the helm with no engine cover?
