O’Day 192 East End Beach
Hi all, I purchased an O’Day 192 a couple of seasons ago. It came with an 8hp outboard. This is oversized for sure for a 19’ boat. I want to downsize to a 3.5hp which by the numbers is enough. Anyone have this setup and have a practical opinion? Thanks in advance!

Welcome to SBO. Do enjoy your stay here.

1. Where are you sailing/motoring?
2. What are the currents like there?
3. Do you plan on motoring a lot (fuel consumption)?

Hi Brian. I’m located in Casco Bay and the currents aren’t too bad typically. I only motor on and off the mooring or if the wind drops off. So fuel burn isn’t much of a concern.

Check out this thread and see if the info there is helpful. Also, at the top of the page is a search function. Try searching on O'Day 192 and see what results appear.
