Motor question?

8 posts in this topic

My brother-in-law sold his 15 hp, 2 stroke and wants to replace it with a 4 stroke with more power and speed. Will a 20 hp 4 stroke work? I think he should go for a 25 hp, 4 stroke, what is your opinions? Thanks

I would always get the biggest motor you can. You will really like the 4-stroke motors. Yamaha makes a very nice 4-stroke, but I'm sure other brands are good to.

I agree with all of the above posts.. especially given that going to a 4 stroke is going to add more weight, and smaller boats are more sensitive to weight changes that larger boats are.

Thanks guy's for all your input. He just called me from Billings saying he went for a new 25 hp 2 cycle E-start Yammy, that will give him quite a positive change on his 14.5' boat.

It's pretty tough to beat that motor as well... good choice!
