Yamaha repower

Post by stengef »

I need to repower my PDQ36. Problem is due to Covid 19, among other things, I am having a hard time coming up with Yamaha 9.9 High Thrust that can be delivered anytime this decade. A few questions:

Have any of you repowered with different brand motors?

Is the 25" shaft required.

The only Yamahas I can come up with have power tilts -- any issues with them.

Any one have a secret source I can go to?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

Try Andy Jr. at Shipyard Island Marina (800-213-3323). Many PDQ owners purchased engines from him.

Thanks I will add them to the list, I am calling around and get pretty much the same story -- due to Covid likely can't get an order filled until summer or later. The search goes on.
