Dinghy Motor

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

My son just passed his boaters test and I wanted him to be able go out with his friends around the coves by our marina. My friend has a 8ft West Marine dinghy and I found a 3.3 engine in great condition. Is this enough motor to move the dinghy?

Check the Motor rating on the serial number tag of the boat, it's usually around 5 HP max on smaller boats like an 8'. if the tag is missing, look up the specs at West.

 

 

the 3.3 won't be really fast but should move it along well.
