Trying to understand the 50HP regulations.
Is a Yamaha 60/40 Jet legal on the Kenai?
The regs talk about prop-shaft HP, but this motor doesn't leave the factory with a prop,
and the motor is factory marked as a "40", not a "60".
Are boats using this motor anyway?
Also, I've heard of boats having twin 40's or 50's,
but tilting one up and running single engine while on the Kenai.
Is that happening? Is it legal? (not always the same thing)
Finally, also heard of boats having both a 50HP main motor and a small kicker motor.
Is that legal? Is it happening anyway? (again, not always the same thing)
What is the law? What is the practical application by law-enforcement?
Don't wanna re-ignite a debate about what shoulda/woulda happened with the new 50HP law,
just looking for some practical first hand info about what's actually happening on the water.
