Older posts but a topic I was concerned about when looking for my Legacy. I found Loki II by the Hudson River in NY. She had been commissioned in R.I. And was a salt water veteran.
Eight years old and well kept, She came with a 4hp Yamaha which the original owner equipped her with. A wise choice I've found out. Long shaft, forward reverse, internal and external fuel tanks and with Yamaha's engineering what's there not to like. With the standard motor mount the long shaft barely drags when beating on a port tack. Heeling that much I'm inclined to pinch or ease the main sheet sheet anyway. Tilting the engine is a piece of cake with a little rope attached to the rear handle and the release lever.all accomplished sitting next to the boom gallows. Love my legacy, a very happy camper, Mike Sr
