honwave t35 and honda 10hp 4 stroke outboard?

hi all, I'm new to boats and am wanting to get a sib for fishing and was wondering if someone could please help me out with some questions i have?:

-will a 10hp outboard be sufficient?
-how fast will a 10hp outboard push the sib with one average sized person in
-are they safe to fish from? (do they puncture from hooks easily)?
-how much fuel does it use up?

thanks in advance
jack.

Go for a 15hp in my opinion boat 3.5m plus yes very stable just know your limitations, hooks and boats dont mix maybe a rigid deck, 10hp 1 up i recon about 12-15mph fuel dont even worry about it very little

Agree. The 10hp will work, but I believe the Honwave 3.5 is rated to 20hp, so running with only half the rated power would be a compromise.

The 10hp would also need running at full bore to get reasonable performance so the 15hp could even be more economical.

I had a Suzumar 360 (practcally identical) with a Suzi 15hp and it was perfectly matched. 50% less power would have been frustrating after a while.

Hope that helps and welcome to the world of boating! Where are you based?

The suggestions for 15hp are possibly steering you towards two stroke . If your looking at a particular package the 10 4 stroke should be fine for your stated one up fishing. If you are wanting to take loads or tow toys at sea, then you will want more hp. 15hp 4 stroke too heavy for me to be easily portable. Check out previous threads.

thanks
you all for the replies, it has been suggested i would need a 15hp would that only be if i wanted speed or would a 10hp struggle to push along the boat? what speeds could i expect from a 10hp and from a 15hp?

thanks jack.

I used to get 22mph 2 up on my excell 3.5 and mariner15 2 s.. i couldnt plane 4 up with a ten , a 15 gives the confidence to power out of problems...

Hi Fisherman

If your intention is to only go at slower speeds, even a 5hp would be okay.

The 10hp with 1 pax will do about 18mph. The 15hp with 1 pax will do about 24mph.

Bingosucks is right to point out that a more powerful engine could get you out of trouble.

Where are you wanting to fish? Rivers, harbours, estuaries or out at sea. Are you wanting to take lots of kit or friends or are you always going solo?

Honwave

Hi there. I have the t35ae with a 15 hp four stroke. Boat is brilliant for inshore fishing and on calmer days I have full confidence in hitting a few offshore reefs, would not do that with a 10 hp though. Although the 15 is fine I even wish sometimes that I had a 20 hp as on calmer days it would really fly. As for puncture with hooks I use a net to land fish onto the ally deck and inform anyone travelling with me of the first rule which is do not puncture my boat. Done 2 full seasons now and am very pleased with it, and yes next to nothing fuel wise, 20 quid gets me a 12 hour session with fuel left and that's covering lots of ground at speed. Lastly I trailer my setup as assembling the honwave is a laborious task. Hope this helps.
