Hi Andy,
well given that's its only a 5.35 general feedback I've had from others is that for its size its an excellent seaboat, with that 90 on it'll fly!
have a look at this thread

Check the weight of that Opti though, it's the same block as the 115, so could be a bit heavyweight for a 535.

well downhill with a following wind mine will hit 40kts, and thats with a 96 evinrude 90 with carbs, I would imagine an opti would be at least as good?
I can't get that thread to open now either search for this-

Good boats, i sea trailed the 5.85 and the 5.35 in the Solent and was impressed, the 5.35 is obviously a fair bit smaller but still handles the rough o.k, only thing i found with the 5.35 is that it could do with having a slightly wider beam, seemed quite narrow, good strong sea boat though.

Andy,

That size of boat and that engine should be very good for you. Have you got a particular boat in mind ?

Nick.
