  • How much thrust from a 2hp yamaha 2SG

    I was just given a 2hp yamaha (yipeee). I was wondering if I could use this motor for trolling purposes. The boat I have in mind is 18ft CC.

    Does anyone have a guess to how much lbs of thrust I could expect from this little sucker?

    Hope the wind does not blow. I am not even sure why they would make a motor this small.

        ANYONE KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THE IMPELLER OF THIS TINY MOTOR?
        Runs good but no info on how to get the impeller off the shaft without potentially destroying it !
        **You could always paint it pink....lol

          We're baaack!
          Figured out how to remove the impeller.
          Open up lower unit. Tapered gear at end of the drive shaft held with a "C" clip.
          Remove gear>shaft slids out> Impeller slid nicely off the shaft! ONLY $23. for this tiny impeller !!!
          BUT it's worthless if it does not work !

            Not much, but it's perfect for a canoe or similar...
