    Default 7.5 HP Harbor Freight Inboard Motor

    I've been watching these guys and have decided to build one for myself...

    My Ernie Dawe boat, Harbor Freight motor, with Roger Hulett's help, we'll "Sail with the tide" soon!

    Default Salton Sea Drive

    Everyone know the first thing you do when you start a new business is name it......So, I've named my new Drive System the Salton Sea Drive.

    The Salton Sea has lots of water but no boats. I think this will work fine my our first 15 HP Racer. Roger Hulett and I are kind of wowrking to gether on this....We'll keept you posted.

    The finished boats are the one already racing down in Malaysia and Brunei.

    They claim 31 MPH with a Harbor Freight motor.

    Looks like fun.

    Does anyone know if those HF engines have steel or chrome sleeves?

    Default I'd Be Surprised If They Have Sleeves...

    I wouldn't be surprised if they just had aluminum cylinders...no sleeves.

    I have read that these engines are built under license from Honda. I repowered a rototiller with one of these and a wood chipper with a larger one. They are excellent engines and never miss a beat.
