Looking at putting a 20hp engine on 15hp rated Quicksilver 340..
Having just seen my 15hp Mariner die I am in the market for a new outboard. I may be able to get my hands on a 20hp which is light enough for the transom and would only be taking this out within the limited swells of a Med bay area, what do you guys think?
1. I may get a bigger SIB next year anyway and wont want to go through purchasing yet another outboard..
2. I have seen plenty of small SIBs out on the water waaaaay over their hp limits (I don´t want to follow this example, but feel I could be OK with an extra 5 horses..
3. The latest 340 Quicksilvers are all rated for 20hp now..
Thoughts...go for it? or toe the line?
