Thats a really big motor for a canoe. The max I've ever seen canoes rated for is 5 hp. Also, being a 4 stroke its gonna be pretty heavy. My 15 hp Merc 4 stroke is 115 lbs.

9.9 Merc 84lbs

The cranberry creek canoe is a 15’10”long and 42” wide square stern canoe. It is rated for a 6hp outboard. The 6 merc weighs 55lbs. The 9.9 weighs 84lbs. I like the 9.9 because it is a two cylinder motor and it has the full function tiller. How do you like that feature on your 15 Merc?
This is only one of many boat and motor combos I am considering. I will be truly grateful for any opinions.
I have some very found memories of the Showdown Bar in San Marcos and the Market Bar-B-Que in Luling , Texas. White wing dove and blue quail hunting with them good ol Texans. And a very special blue eyed blond haired Gal ,we danced many dances at the Gruene Hall down by New Braunfels. http://www.lake-link.com/businesses/bus ... nessID=445
