I already have two small trailers one for a 15' monohull sailboat and another for my 16' hobie cat....cant have another trailer period!
Will the 125lbs cadet be too heavy to carry to and from the bed of my truck by two people??
Can I fit a 25hp into a 15-20hp max rated boat???
Engine WEIGHT is the main criteria - if you can get a 25hp 2 stroke for the weight of a 15hp 4 stroke go for it. I think the Yam 25hp is the same engine as the 20 anyway.
As to moving the boat around what you need are these wheels or similar - people say things are more expensive in Britain but these wheels look overpriced to me - shop around!!!
Here is a pic of my boat with the wheels attached - make sure you get the large inflatable tyres - not the solid ones. The wheels just swing up out of the way when you aren't using them. They are essential....
