Hello From Whitstable and Suzuki DF20/25 Question

Hi everyone,

I'm a new Sibber, Just ordered a Honwave T40 and looking to power it with a Suzuki DF20 or DF25. It will be trailered but I will be launching with transom wheels. Do you think this is possible with the heavier (preferred) DF25 ?


Thanks a lot, great site by the way!

i tried them but was too heavy so i binned them and launch with the trailer new bearings every year 40
it's not the engine thats the problem it's the length of boat past the wheels in my case 120 kg

As an owner of a new DF20 for the past 12mths I'd happily choose Suzuki again... but I'd say if you reckon you can manage the extra weight and cost then that extra cylinder and 5hp will be a benefit to a heavier SIB like the T40.

Hi chaps, many thanks for the replies.
I'm going to go with the 25 and launch off the trailer.
