If you're not doing long passages and not going out in nasty weather, then you should be fine with 30hp.

It's only for the more loony users that you really need trim and tilt and 40-50hp.

3 cyl Yamaha

It is a criminal offence against the boating community...

There is only one 3 cylinder Yamaha to fit to a 4m SR and that is the 50hp...

30hp is good for say helping giving rest from paddling, but a 50hp.. just makes everything right!

Get a 50hp and just have a big grin on your face..

Same way 5.4m owners only like SR with 90 Yams on..

If you are going to use it for scuba, chuck a 50 on it and enjoy.
