Anybody using a 9.9hp on a 10 ft. portabote?
- I'm considering buying a 10 ft. porta bote for use as a sailboat
tender. I own a 9.9 Johnson. I'd rather not buy a second engine if
that one can be used. The weight with oil is 76 lb. Any one know
what would be the performance of a 10 footer with this engine?
- This link will take you to porta-bote's spec page. They list max
gasoline engine weight as 54 pounds for the 10 and 12 foot botes.

I knew of the spec. but I own a 9.9hp and want to use it if possible.
For example I used the 9.9 on an inflatable "rated" for 8hp max. It
worked fine. I did reinforce it to take the extra power. I wondered
if others had done similar things with the Porta Bote.
