"Release the Kraken" could be a great strapline for the brand - you'd better copyright that now Mark!

Seriously, it will be interesting to see the boat brought to market - good luck with the business venture

That seems very small for a 5.8.

If you want to be in the market I think it needs to be upto 140 HP (and able to take the KGs for a wide range of outboard manufacturers if not I'd view it as inferior to others that can and one that would depreciate quicker. Just reckon you need to be up there with the best in the segment or your marketing strategy may need to be rewritten. If a transom can't take it (or has been downspecied not to) then you end up questioning the overall quality...and your in the lower value segment by default. I'd say upto c5m maybe c5.5m a 100 works, a 585/6m needs the option to step up particularly when you look at the lighter weight and better economy of newer outboards. Just my opinion, others will be better qualified as I don't know the size of the outboard market, but I do know a 585 with a 140 is a great combo.

Just for balance, my old 5.6 with 100hp 4 stroke was garbage 4 up, needed more grunt or less pies
