Hi why did you change to 15 over the 9.9? I am looking at buying one, is the Parsun ok or better to spend alot extra $$ for yam etc, I was going to buy suzy 6hp 4 stroke , not so sure now..
Hi Murry The 270 Whaley is super stable and planes easily with 1 person and 9.9hp, we load the boat up , often 2 100kg blokes plus hunting or diving gear, the boat is built very strong this also makes it a bit heavy but allows for a bigger motor. With a 15hp and a permatrim the boat is bloody awesome! Re the Parsun outboard I’m a Yamaha/Honda snob, bought a parsun as a short term cheep option, i hate to say, I love them. The 15hp is my second one, they are very very reliable motors, i spent quit a bit of time on-line trying to find people having issues but couldn’t find any, I can’t fault mine. The 6hp Four stroke will not plane the boat with a large adult on board, if your not going a long way it would be fine. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the prompt reply, cool videos great to see people out doing outdoors stuff looks like u in deep south somewhere we are in Hamilton so a little landlocked but hope to attach a 2.7 to motorhome somehow when we go travelling, we carry canoes but a bit tiring when you want to go a fair distance!
Murray Pinkerton , this would be perfect for that, way better than a Mac270 which are very unstable

It won’t plane without a 15?
COUCHSAILORS Sailing Videos , 9.9hp was ok with one adult, 15hp better for 2 Adults, boat is super stable 🙂 I love mine.
