    Hi, I'm buying a 16ft Yorkshire Pebble with a well for the outboard........ it needs a new outboard so do I need to be looking for a short or longshaft........ Your comments would be much appreciated. Steve

    long shaft mate, we had one of these boats years ago, great little seaboat. i would imagine you would be needing a 10 - 15 hp

    Yorkshire pebbles don't have outboard wells they have a transom to which you strap on your outboard

    You nust be buying a similar type boat but its not a pebble. A pebble will motor quite happily with a 5hp seagull on the back and the majority of pebbles sailed with a 4 or 5 shortshaft seagull, being a displacement boat the hull has a maximum speed regardless of the horsepower of the enginge

    I guess though that with the outboard well in the boat you're buying that only a longshaft will work

    some pebbles were built at 18ft with the well ,
    slightly heaver built was the tryton cobble [ built at bransburton ] avalble 16ft no well and 18 20 and a few at 24 [ think theres a 24 at hornsea]
    also were the wiglsworth cobbles 16ft built at irton near seamer alot narower and heaver thn the hornsea pebbles crap in a folowing sea

    and there end the history leson for the day :happy:
