Boat motor weight question


Recommended Posts

I have a 1996 Bass Tracker Pro 18 with a Force 50hp motor. Specs state the Force weighs 185 lbs. I have acquired an 04 Yamaha F75 four stroke as a replacement.

Specs for the Yamaha state it weighs 370 lbs, twice the Force weight. The boat is rated up to 90hp, 5 persons or 685 lbs, 1235 lbs (persons,motor,gear).

I only have 2 people total in the boat, and typical gear, nothing unusual.

Will the 75 be too heavy on the transom, or because it is still below total weight be acceptable?
