2 or 4 stroke and engine size

Hi Guys,

I'm new to all this forum and sib boating in general but fancy buying a boat and getting out on the water.

Anyway I think I'm going to buy a sea pro 430 HD and wondered what you guys thought would be best engine to buy

Its mainly going to be used for sea fishing out Filey, Scarborough and a bit further south..Hull, Grimbsy etc. Wouldn't be going to far offshore to start with. With that in mind I would also like something with a bit of poke for fun. At any one time sib will have 2 people on board..maybe 3.

I have option to buy a 2013 Evinrude 25HP Long shaft 2 stroke..would this be a suitable engine? If suitable what sort of price? I understand it has very little use and very low hours....Or should I be looking for a 4 stroke ??

My plan was to buy boat first then build it up over winter but if price is right will just buy both together.

Cheers

i have a hydroforce sunsaile (Look it up for pictures) 3.8 mtr with oars, 2 seats, and infaltable floor with a 2stroke 15hp murcury (long shaft) also that will come with this is a brand new in the box liner (which is the boat apart from the floor, oars, and seats) so in affect you would be getting 2 boats one being brand new the other used about 15 times and an engine could use a mot but runs great and pushes it along very nicely with 2 adults and 2 kids the boat retails on amazon for 800 GBP for this package i am after 1,000 GBP

I think there's not many sibs that require a longshaft outboard you may struggle as most use a short shaft

I think the SeaPro 430hd takes a max 30hp long shaft motor, so the 25hp Etec will be a good match.
Are you thinking of trailering as at 115kg boat and 70kg engine it will be a big old beast to manhandle otherwise.

no trailer..I'll only be going out with my bro to begin with.
When you say a big old beast to manhandle 🙄..do you think 2 relatively fit guy (6 + footers and enjoy weight training at gym) would manage okay? I hoping where ever we launch from won't be to far from van. Was going to get some transom wheels and some sort of outboard motor pallet truck thing we can chuck in back of van aswell. Basically setup as close to water as poss then load up, bro can wait while I go park can up...but watch this space !

Probably do-able for two depending on launch area. Good luck.

It is a small world that will be a nice set up have a look at gurnards threads he has a similar set up he trails the boat but the engine travels on a sack barrow in the car
