    Question Yamaha Stern Drive???

    I'm considering buying a 1994 20 foot Ebbtide Runabout. It has a 5.0L Yamaho I/O (Single Prop). The engine is still the basic 305 Chevy, but I am not familiar with the Yamaha Stern Drive at all. The boat is supposedly perfect, but I'm worried about problems with the stern drive and if it is still supported if something happens.

    Any and all opinions/advice on the stern drive would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Greg

    Well, I did some searching on the forums AFTER I posted this. Looks like the consensus is that there are no parts for this stern drive. If it fails, you basically have a fairly major task of remounting a Mercruiser Outdrive. Think I'll let someone else have the fun.
