I plan to go fishing and also tow a ringo in the sea.
Why does everyone hate 4 strokes, is it just the weight factor?
Don't 4 strokes have more torque? correct spelling????????
I doubt you will be towing a ringo with a 15hp 4 stroke on such a sized S.I.B I think it will struggle!
I don't hate 4 strokes I just think it's not suited to that size boat for the needs you say. Maybe I'm wrong. Fishing will be fine with it, great in fact as it will be cheap fuel, quiet and reliable being new!
Carrying will become an issue, as will storage in the truck.
Id suggest going for a very clean 2 stroke before committing to new. See how you get on. If it's no good sell it for what you paid. Either way, I'm sure it will work out one way or another though.
