About 30 HP Outboard Motor

Your old 2-stroke had a stroke, and if you want to get out while the fish are still biting, you realize it is better to replace it than repair it. You decide you need more power, anyway, and start shopping for a 30 HP outboard motor. The horses needed behind your outboard depend on a number of factors, mainly the size and weight of your boat, but also how you plan to use it. Always check the rating on the Coast Guard specification plate on your boat before buying or modifying an outboard. Boat hulls have a force rating, and overpowering the boat by using more horses than it should have can result in damage to your boat. It can also negate any insurance claims should there be an accident. When choosing your new outboard, measure the transom height on your boat, so you can be sure the power shaft is the correct length. A 30 HP Evinrude outboard motor with a 20-inch shaft has an in-line, two-cylinder engine, while a comparable 30 HP Yamaha outboard motor is a four-cylinder engine boasting a 3-star CARB emissions rating. Find a large inventory of outboard motors on eBay, including 30 HP outboard motors for small fishing craft, and high-powered engines for water skiing.
