5.2 Infanta with a kicker engine

Post by Stephen22 »

I have an Infanta 5.2m with a 90hp Yamaha 2 stroke. My plan was to sell the 90 and buy 2x50/60hp 2 stroke engines.
This is proving not to be easy, the Yamaha engines are not easy to find. My plan B is to get a small kicker engine next to my 90 but there isn't much space.

Has anyone done this on the 5.2 that can send me some photos of how they did it or does anyone have 50/60hp for sale.
My 90hp yamaha 2 stroke engine has 96 hours on it and is still perfect, what could I sell it for?

Any info would be appriciated.

Saw this setup on a duck a few years back. Believe the Owner had it custom made.

Not sure where you are based, but give Neil Hardman at the Boating Shed in CT a call, I believe it was a customer of his and he organised the fabrication.
