You don't want to be putting more then 50hp on a 4m it will be a hairy ride. Should that read maximum 50hp?

a mate of mine had one with a 60 merc bigfoot that went well, there was one on boats and outboards recently with a Yamaha 55 that I missed out on, want the power trim/tilt which you don't get on smaller engines also want the power for pulling knee board etc

One I used to have was fitted with a Merc 60 after I sold it on the basis it was the same weight as the 50, and then fitted with towing post. I wonder if this was your mate ? ( red spray deck - was based in Swindon? )

A 55 yam may have been old enough to measure 55 at the head , but newer engines are measured at the prop - so an old 55 may easily be be down to the same as a 'newer' 50... ( it must have been an old engine as they stopped making 55hp a good time ago I reckon).

Have a go at the 'search' on here - top right ish - loads of SR4 info.

avon searider

this clean tidy outfit was for sale a few months back with 55 yam for 2,500, its for my family and friends to use when they come out boating with me, I don't want to buy a 30/40 new 4 stroke outboard for thousands, then buy a boat and rig it, you do the maths on that one

I understand the issue, i was simply pointing out there are sub 50hp with PTT out there. I have water skied off sr5.4 with 40hp and kneeboarded off boats with 15hp so understand your needs.

There is no need to look for a sr4 with >50hp they become flighty and chine walk at max speed, better to look for the right engine/hull combination that work together.

There is the optimum boat out there for you
