I'm in need of a long shaft kicker on the big boat, sort of an emergency "Get home" motor. I have three standard 15" shaft outboards, and I was wondering which would be the easiest to convert and where to get parts kits.
The possibilities are, 1989 6hp Evinrude, 2003 5hp Mercury, and a 1996 3 hp Evinrude. I also have a 1994 15 HP Force, but that's last on the list because of the weight. I want to keep to motor stored until needed, and climbing around the boat with the 15 HP in hand does not appeal to me.
