Yeah I agree but when they were given the max hp rating it was obviously with a lighter 2 stroke in mind.
Just thought I would mention it.
Mine was fine with a 4cylinder 50hp blue band merc on the back which was the same basic engine as the 80hp in the day!
I also saw one with a 70hp 3 cylinder on, which was the same basic engine as the 50hp of that type. That was fine too.
