    I just joined this group. Last fall I purchased a 1984 Oday 192, nice clean boat. It came with a 25″ shaft Mariner 4hp two stroke that needs replacing. I have been looking at the Tohatsu 6hp four stroke outboards with a 25 inch shaft. I need to replace the cheap outboard bracket that has a 10 inch lift which came with the boat (this was replaced by the previous owner). I have read mixed articles on having a 10 inch lift versus a higher lift. i will have to replace the wedge which mounts between the outboard bracket and the transom as the newer brackets are wider. My sailing is on Lake Huron where squalls do come out of nowhere. Any thoughts on a four stroke bracket and length of lift. If someone who has already made this conversion would be willing to share photos of their finished project it would be helpful. Thank you.
