30hp 4s - 50hp 2s?
I'm new to the forum and would love some advice from experienced boaters out there......
I have a 5m rib with rear bench and separate console and intend to move the console forward and install a jockey to improve balance and comfort - while I'm at it I am contemplating swapping my 30hp 4s for a more powerful 2s.
We use the boat for fun only; short trips and mostly estuary so economy isn't too much of an issue. Weight though, is. Before converting to ribs I had a ski boat with a Yam 50 Autolube and loved it as was cheap and easy to fix and maintain and survived multiple dunkings (not that I intend those anymore!)
Does any one know of the weight comparison between these 2 engines -
Current: Suzuki 30hp 4s
Proposed: Yam 50hp 2s
And welcome any other intel... pros/cons, value, examples of similar jobs
Thanks in advance
