Default 7.5 marine engines

Thinking about building a new Hydro over the winter. Which manufacture still sells a 7.5 CC engine ?

AA, Nova Rossi, OS all make a .45/.46 though all but the OS you have to order directly from the distributor

Thanks. Do you have a contact/website/distributor for AA and Nova Rossi? OS manufacture website says the VM-X is discontinued. Is there a warehouse somewhere that still has those in stock?

The MAC engines haven't been made in several years after a falling out between CMB and Andy Brown. I haven't seen an OPS in a long time as Aeromarine used to carry them.
Jerry Crowther at Seaducer Boats also carries CMB's.
With the CMB or Nova Rossi you can't go wrong in a 'rigger, they're both at home in those hulls.

What hydro are you looking at?

Looks like the pool of manufactures is dwindling. Im probably going to build a Whiplash or something along those lines.

The Whiplash is a very good hydro. It seems to be a battle between Brian's boat and Phil Thomas' Sport 40 in this neck of the woods. It depends on what you want, a wood kit or epoxy-glas hull.

CMB, Novarossi, or AA will be the most competitive, along with the new Picco 45 that used to be available from Hallam Hobbbies in Canada. OPS is available from GotNitro, they are out of California, but they are just the same engine as from years ago. Join Intlwaters and you will have a much easier time finding suppliers.

I heard something from italians about Picco 45, they want to start produce it this winter, but how much and how long nobody doesn't know.
