  1. Hi All, I am looking at possibly purchasing a boat from a friend. I am aware of most of the things I need to be considering in regard to this (safety certificates, hull blacking, etc) but one thing I am concerned about is the size of it's outboard motor. It is a 27' Springer narrowboat and is powered by an 8hp Honda outboard. It is currently only used on short stretches of the Rivers Ure, and Ouse north of York. The engine is felt satisfactory for this, but not for trips South of York. Can anybody provide me with any thoughts regarding this please. In general I might have preferred in-board engine but I have good reasons for considering this boat. Many thanks, Izzy
