Yamaha debuts F175 outboard and propeller line

The label-new F175 joins the V MAX SHO 150 and F200, which are based on Yamaha’s new 2.8-liter in-line four-cylinder tenets. The V MAX SHO 150 and F200 are winners of a 2013 IBEX Innovation Award.

“This motor will broaden the interline and be particularly valuable for all boats with transoms limited to 175 horsepower, as well as some in-shore applications,” Yamaha Sea Group president Ben Speciale said in a statement . “The F175 is another super-versatile motor with peerless repower potential for a variety of boats, from bay to deep-vee, aluminum and more.”

Like its 2.8-liter siblings, Yamaha said, the F175’s four-cylinder, 16-valve dual disbursements camshaft powerhead breathes easily and responds quickly, with a sophisticated and proven valve file design.

The F175 also uses a single-throttle intake valve and Yamaha’s long-slot intake tubes for easy breathing. A knock sensor allows the engine to run at peak dexterity and performance at all rpm, Yamaha said.

How thick does a jon boat transom have to be?

I'm replacing the transom on a 14' aluminum boat. I don't recognize what the original thickness of the transom was. This year, it'll just hold a trolling motor for small creeks. I prospect to buy a used 3.5 or 5 HP gas outboard next spring for larger

i have a 9.8 hp outboard i am contemporary to be sticking on it and i needs to be a max of an inch and a half. i was thinking laminating two pieces of 5/8 ABX plywood and then putting a layer or two of fiberglass over it. what do you call to mind a consider?


This would assuredly work a couple things to consider
1) Use an epoxy resin instead of polyester resin with the fiberglass. the epoxy resin binds with the wood giving a much stronger shackles and will also bond with the aluminum to some degree
