Best all around duck hunting boat motor? 25HP or 40HP.

This will be my only boat and I got a 25 HP/Basstracker but I'm going to sell it and get a real camo duck boat with tiller steering. I'd like a 25 HP to hunt the scatters but I go to Lake Ouachita and the 40 would be better there. Vote.

I've run Ouachita many, many years with a 25 horse motor and it did just fine. You'll get there, but just a lot slower.

I wouldn't recommend a 40 horse in the Scatters though.

About the best motor 25 or 40hp might be better suited in the Boat's forum.. Just an idea to help the guy get some posts on it.
