The t25LA motor cost me $4200.00 not including the remote
,and extension kit.
It's twice the weight and at least 2 1/2 times the power of the 9.9
12" prop pitched and geared for high thrust.
The power tilt and trim is very cool too.
I think it will make a big difference fighting current
Another nice feature is that the alternator
output is 13.5 amps as opposed to 6amps on the 9.9
I'm going to wire it to charge the house batteries while in use.
It's a huge beastcompared to the 9.9
another upgrade I will add is a remote
bulkhead mount water
seperator fuel filter
On the subject of the sled/nacelle bracket.
I'm thinking "the sweet spot"for the motor would be right under the sterncastle side window.
If you look at post #1732,Doggone has a photo
of that low profile hatch
Right where that hatch
is,is a nice spot with a fairing that blended into the underwing.
way more protected and 7 ft farther forward than a bracket on the stern.
He says he has never had water
on it in alot of sailing miles
The weight would be like me sitting in the sterncastle.
