... But the 90 on a 6.1 dive rib would be a little underpowered. I don't know your application.

It goes okay with the tohatsu 90hp on but not neck wrenching. We don't dive or water ski . Just me and the family playing about. Although I read a old report on the Web that claimed 54mph from the setup when new!

The V6 135 and 150 is a different animal .. although not without their problems, mine (135) suffered poor carb setup and wouldnt pull up a skier

As to the 4 pot 115 and 125 as others have said

we have a caravan at penrhyn bay just opposite the harbour, so not far from you at all - we are regulars in trearddur bay so will have to meet up! yes there was an increase in speed (6-8kts maybe more) but the biggest difference was being able to carry more people without the engine struggling to get the boat planing. fuel consumption is very similar because the engine isnt working as hard as the smaller one, but it does use more if you spend a lot of time working the throttle playing around. believe me, the small increase will be nothing compared to the big increase in fun!
