He said that with a 25 HP the boat will go about 38 mph (which will feel like about 80 in that small of a boat) and I will be able to throw the keys to anyone and not be worried about them killing themselves (or someone else). The hull only weighs about 250 lbs.
25 is perfect for that boat .. my sister had one for the kids and i took it out a couple times ..It flew with the 25 ..especially after i shimmed it , threw it up a pin

I CAN'T!!!! Our company won a bunch of awards in our industry and the ceremony is the 29th from 6-11pm in Williamsburg. I was pi$$ed when I realized it was the same night.
BTW: Did I see you listed as a member of CBPBA. What poker runs do they do? I've already registered for the Richmond run but would like to do one on the upper bay. Would prefer one that goes to Annapolis or Baltimore just to see the area by water. Any suggestions?

Craig, call Tim at Marine Services in Woodbridge VA. He's a great guy and really knows his stuff when it comes to marine engines. He's the only guy who I let touch my boat. Anyway, he has alot of used outboard motors for sale, too. I'm sure he can help you.
Just tell him I told you to call him. Hopefully he won't charge you extra!

Hey Craig, we still got a V8 300 OB hanging around, I think we can make it work, I got a great set of tools

Russ, we do about 4 runs a year in the upper Bay. If you sign up as a website member (free) on www.cbpba.com you can check up on all our events and join us for the fun. We will definitely help you burn up some fuel and kill some brain cells- right Craig??????

I did sign up, but all I see is the names and dates of the runs. It doesn't list where they go. Remember I'm not familiar with the area if it did anyway. Just thought I'd take the easy way out and ask a "local".
