2 questions on new boat motor?


Recommended Posts

1. 25 hp evinrude elec start model 25752h serial e0003141 i found its a 1977 any way i can find out how much it weighs.

2. the boat i put it on is light. i want to put some weight in the front. is it better to run the battery up front or the fuel tank it would be about 7 feet i think this may be to long for a fuel hose thank you

No clue about the weight, but my advice would be to set the battery up front. The weight of the battery never changes versus the fuel tank having no weight at the end of a day of fishing. Plus, if you need to prime the fuel into the crab, you don't want to crab walk to the front of your boat. It's also good to keep gas fumes separated from batteries so separating the two is a good way to go.
