I have recently ordered the INTEX MARINER INFLATABLE BOAT from cabelas. The smaller version of this is the INTEX SEA HAWK II which I already possess. I bought the INTEX MOTOR MOUNT too which states that it supports 1.5HP motors.

Now I want to buy an outboard motor for my boats. Since there are no dealers or service providers of any manufacturer out here in Assam I have no idea which company is good or bad.

I even dont know whether I would be able to use a 2-2.5HP motors on my boats.

Thanks

Cheers,
Apoo

Sup Apoo!

Long time!!!

HP of the OB depends on the kind of boat and types of waters you are going to use them in. The boat will have a min to max rating somewhere on the transom!

I've picked up 2 OBs from this guy in Chennai. he is the official dealer for Yamaha OBMs in India and provides service support as well.

I'll pm you the link to his website. Prices start at about 25 K for a 2 hp.

Cheers,
