Motor Upgrade Question

Thank you, Shawn for all your help and input. I've been on the sears parts site a bunch of times and studied over the schematics. I'll hit it up again and see if I missed something. Thanks again.

Wildlife Photography from a boat

JLee, I really enjoyed your photos in this thread. I look forward to seeing more of your work. I can't wait to get my boat in the water and see what I can come up with, photo wise. Question for you, My Canon 5D just bit the dust again (for the 3rd time). So I've had to rely on my old faithful, 20D. ...

Motor Upgrade Question

I've seen in here where some folks have been able to upgrade their OB motors to the next higher HP. What I would like to find out is, that I have a Sears Gamefisher 3.5 HP (217.585230). Can this motor be upgraded to a 5 HP and if so, just what would I have to do and replace to make the upgrade. I've...

Unknown 12' Aluminum V Hull

The boat it's self has absolutely no identifying marks, stamps, or tags other than inside the transom is a 5 digit number stamped. ...
