Seapro and Johnson 30hp
I just bought a Johnson 30hp - 2 stroke, elec start, it's 1999 model. I just need to decide what sib to get. It's either the Seapro 380HD or 430HD.
This will be my first sib, played around in a mates 3.4 with air deck but I prefer the larger alloy version for fishing. Will be 3 lads mostly fishing or family 2 adults one child just messing about pulling a donut etc...
They are both pretty heavy and a bit of work to set-up and the engine is not the lightest thing either. In the long run I'll probably have it set-up on a trailer but for now storage is an issue.
The 380 is pretty decent size but can't help to think I'll appreciate the extra space on the 430 on the water. What will you guys recommend will be best with the 30hp Johnson. I know their both big sibs etc but more interested on performance and on water enjoyment/practicality.
The engine is getting a full service and re-spray, any thing particular to look out for on that engine?
Any advice appreciated.
