Repowering is exactly what it sounds like: getting a new and better power source behind your boat. Whether that is by rebuilding your engine or installing a new one, this cost-efficient option is a great alternative to purchasing a new boat or continuing expensive maintenance on an aging engine. There are many reasons that people choose to repower their boat. Buying a new boat may not be in your budget at the moment or you may simply want a better, more powerful or fuel efficient engine.
Here are some questions we can help you answer if you are considering repowering your boat:
 Should I change horsepower?
Look at the boat’s capacity plate to learn the maximum rated horsepower.Boats perform at their best with the maximum rated horsepower. Plus, you’ll often get the best fuel economy because the engine is not struggling. Just because you have the horsepower doesn’t mean you have to use it all of the time. But it’s nice to have it handy when needed, such as when powering over a big wave.
 Should I change engine brands?
The biggest reason to change is unhappiness with your current brand, be it related to performance, local dealer service or warranty terms. If you’re satisfied with all three, there’s little reason to change brands. If you do plan to switch, check out the local dealer and make sure you’re comfortable with the available service, the product and the warranty.
 Should I change the number of outboards?
Changing the number of outboards is not always a good idea. It’s very complex and involves lots of fiberglass work to prep the transom for such a drastic switch. Also, adding another outboard can add too much weight to the stern, or the transom might not have enough width or structural support to accommodate another engine.
If you want to go from a single to twins for offshore safety, that issue is hardly relevant today. Reliability of today’s outboards is such that you should not be afraid to go 30 to 40 miles offshore with a single outboard.
 Should I get new controls and instruments?
It’s a good idea to update everything — steering, throttle and shift, cables, electrical harnesses, battery cables, and instruments. Consider the steering. Why struggle with an old, worn steering system with your new outboard? Similarly, a new engine with old controls and gauges will only dampen your experience.
Digital instrumentation has also come a long way in the last 10 years, offering information that old gauges could not provide, such as fuel consumption and best speed for fuel efficiency.
 Should I change to another outboard technology?
The technology aspect of a repower has become less impactful over time. In the early 2000s, four-stroke outboards were associated with being heavier and requiring more maintenance than two-strokes. That’s no longer the case. As two- and four-strokes approach parity in terms of weight and maintenance, the key is to select an outboard technology that makes your boat perform the way you want and maximizes its value.
 Should I install new fuel-system components?
The short answer is a resounding yes. We recommend that boaters replace all of the boat’s fuel hoses with new Coast Guard-approved, ethanol-resistant hoses with every repower, if not more often. This is also the time to make sure you have a 10-micron water-separating fuel filter for each engine.
If you’re upgrading to higher horsepower, check the engine manufacturer’s specifications to ensure that you install a fuel hose and fittings with inside diameters (e.g., ⅜ inch) sufficient to sustain the engine’s fuel needs at wide-open throttle. A fuel line or fitting that’s too small can starve the engine of fuel at the upper rpm range, not only hampering performance, but also leaning out the fuel-to-air ratio, a condition that can damage an engine.
 Will my old battery system be sufficient?
The answer depends on which engine you choose. Some outboards with integrated power-steering systems and high-pressure fuel-delivery systems may require a more robust battery system. Check the engine manufacturer’s specifications or ask your dealer.
You should also replace the old battery cables with fresh ones. Old cables might be corroded inside, causing too much resistance, lowering the voltage delivery, and increasing amp draw to excessive levels.
 What should I do with my old engine?
You can advertise your old engine for sale, but your main stumbling block will be moving a large, heavy outboard off your boat and onto the buyer’s boat. This is where a dealer can help. Depending on the condition of your old engine we may be willing to assist you in the selling of the old engine.
