Personally I think the 6hp is a bit small for an Eventide and the increased power would be most welcome,
I even have a 6hp diesel in my stretched Senior and that doesn't feel particulary overpowered,
As for the Sabb diesel, I know absolutely nothing about them and I am afraid that you will have to ask a grown up who does. :roll:

Yes the Sabb 10 would be great in an Eventide 24.

I have had an 8hp Stuart Turner and that was enough powere, but being petrol needed to rev to get the power out.

Many have fitted 9 and 10 hp diesels to great effect.

The Sabb is heaviert than some of the more modern motors, but my stuart 8 weighed in at 240lb!

Good luck with the motor and the Eventide.
