40 hp Mariner on mine at present. Planes 6 up. a flier with one in.

Fuel consumption is pretty good only 30 litres a day fast cruising the lenght of the menai straights. Yamaha 50 does the same slightly better but adds about 8 to 10 litres of fuel used.

they make excellent fishing boats, very stable ideal for drifting for bass and mackerel, have used her in winter for the cod anchored but you do tend to get blown around by the wind but very stable in the water
