boat length for 40hp

Postby cut-emnova » Tue Jan 14, 2014 10:49 am

Looking to upgrade my boat from a riveted 16' to a welded 16-18'. i currently have a 40hp yammie EFI. Would this motor be sufficient for a welded 18ft boat with 3 guy and gear or should i stick with a 16-17?

a 16ft of any sort should be fine with a 40 a 18ft not so much as stated before a 1848 would be ok but if I were going 1860 I'd want at least a 60 if not a 90.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.
