Nonsense, you have not yet begun to defile yourself.

I'll give you Viper-MAX marks if you can work in a famous name from the Fal catchment in two more posts

I chuck this into the pot as a thought:

If it's mainly for fishing, one up it's likely going to have a reasonable performance for lugging one man & his rods around. I assume if you going fishing you'll be accelerating approx twice per outing, and is an extra couple of knots really going to make or break your day?

Add the family, and is sluggish a huge problem? - Break them in gently (rather than scaring them off the boat forever in the first 10 mins) , and use the time to find a nice 115 for it so you can have "family fun" when they are more confident in and around the boat.


This of course assumes the hull is, your ideal hull. Remember if it's "only" rated for 115 HP, chances are it's going to be quite a lightweight hull, so may not be as sluggish as generic paper theory would hint - I use my decrepit old Humber as an example. Rated for 60Hp, but the whole lot ready to go weighs in at 420Kg (Incl 85L of fuel). The new version (O-Pro 2m Beam) weighs in at 295Kg for the hull alone, but is rated for a 90........ Then add the previous discussion ref it;s actual length. toob tip to nose is generally half - 3/4 a meter bigger than the inside space. Some people measure the "hull" rather than the LOA.

my Osprey Eagle was just fine with 130 yamaha strapped on the back,
up on the plane in seconds and flew as straight as an arrow of them there swells in bristol channel, i was concerned over the transom at first but was told by the builder it could more than cope with it,
but truly rated at 115hp and this is 2 stroke weights not a lumpy metal modern 4-banger.

there was one advertised with 150 opti on not to long ago.
