What ever scale you want it to be . What is the length and type of boat you were looking to purchase one for?

Really depends on what motor your modeling.
A Merc 250/25 Opti is ~6ft tall, EP1 is 7", equates to about 1/10 scale, 7.2" actually
If you go with different size motor / lower unit, this will alter the scale.

I'm going with 40hp on my Meteor build. At some point I'm going to fashion a cowling to resemble a 1950s Mercury Mark 55 (40hp). The actual motor is about 4-1/2 ft. tall, so my scale will be closer to 1/7.5. As noted, the scale is based on what you're putting the motor on...
