Dave,
Am I correct in that the Q indicated the mid-housing was 15" and the H indicates a shorter mid-housing - about 12" or so??
Thanks,
Thom

yes that is right. the Q was for runabout and the hydros complained so the H came out for hydro and then the runabouts shaved there transoms down and got lower center of gravity.it stuck.

Those tiny little Mercs intrigue me but i gotta ask...they are labeled as a "racing" motor when they look like something that would struggle to push a 10 foot aluminum fishing boat...

How fast would they effectively push a small boat(say a small hydro)??

Right on!

Are you going to make a runner out of it or is it just for collection purposes??
