    Is it difficult to do this, and where would one find a new carb. Thanks

    No, what kind of motor? And why you swapping it?

    Not sure what year but it's a Johnson seahorse, 9.9 and it doesn't seem to have the power that I would like. I saw boyessen reeds on the bobs machine shop I thought about changing too, if it even has these to change. What are some thoughts on that?

    If your not happy with a 9.9 your not going to be hapy with anything you do to it.

    Yes, Yes I know you can make it a 15hp but you might gain 1-2 mph. You need to move up to a 25hp if your skiff is rated for it, and you will see night and day performance gains!
