When the equivalent of 20 horses are pulling against the transom instead of 16 do you not think that will matter? Buying new and instantly invalidating warranty?
What does "zipping about" cover? How many people? How far? Towing anything?
Will you launch it at all or once its in the water is it living on your davits?
thanks for the reply, zipping about means short 1 mile trips up and down the river with 2 people and child. No towing.
Was not sure what impact having a 20 on a 15 rated boat would have, was keen to get as powerful an engine due to the tides on the tidal thames, but if the extra power will be a problem on the transform then goof to hear, so i can change my decision to a 15hp
