Re: Homemade outboard motor using briggs 2hp

that 152lbs cant be if that were true then lets say you have this 250 hp ( 190,000 watts) motor and it pushes the boat say 55 mph (25 m/s)

from f=p/s then f = 190000/25 = 7600 newtons = 1700 lbs

there would have to be 1700 lbs force on the prop and on the back of the boat, if you were to apply 1700 lbs in the small area where the motor hooks to the back of the boat doesnt seem like it would hold it
