Hi, Iím looking at re-engining my Zodiac Pro Open 550. Current engine is an Evinrude 90hp V4 2 stroke. Very noisy and thirsty.
I mainly use the boat on lakes but would like the option of a few sea trips. I was originally looking at a secondhand Yamaha 80hp 4 stroke but a Honda 75hp has come on the market.
Has anyone done a similar swap? I usually cruise at low-mid twenties for economy and comfort. Will a 75hp Honda be powerful enough?
If you had the choice between an Honda 75 and a Yamaha 80 what would you go for!
