Mercury 4, 5, & 6 horsepower motor

Thanks in advance for your help. What years? I have a 98 4hp merc and often wonder the same. Sent from my LG-LS993 ...

De-carbonizing?

Figured id show a better pic of the piston since I've decided to take the motor apart for the winter to replace the piston rings and reed valves. This is after a can of the seafoam deepcreep. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171106/3c9f1c2a8ec44f477d0038502ae81054.jpg Sent from my LG-LS993 using T...

I'd imagine you'll need some long float pods to keep the back end up. Totally following this thread. Check out the guys@ screem and fly forum. I bet this would be somewhat right up Their alley.

It's all in the weight distribution and the prop. More weight and you'll need a second prop to compensate the diff. The hole shot won't be the same as with one person nor will wot but it will be close enough.
