6 posts in this topic

the plate on my 14ft 1989 crestliner aluminum fishhawk is scrubbed off where it shows the max weight motor i can put on , i couldnt find it on internet. It has a 90 pound 18 horse on it now. i was thinking of going bigger is there any real light weight, 25-40 horse power motors on the market? Also what do you guys think i could get away with putting on the back of it

What is the Beam of the boat??? Max weight in the boat ,gear people etc. No need of a 40 My 16' 8' beam mirrocraft used to fly with a 40 and it was rated at 50. Look at Outboard manufactures specs for there engines. More than likely it's going to be around 20- 30 HP Max

Lightweight motors? Nothing that will even come close to that 18 that you already have. A new Evinrude E Tech 30 with electric start will be right at 150#, and that doesn't include the battery.

There are lots of used 25HP 2 strokes out there. I had one and sold it and I've been using a 9.9 HP on a 14 ft Sea Nymph alum. A 25 would be perfect, anything bigger would be just extra weight.

I think anything over 25hp is overkill. I have a 16 ft Starcraft with a 25 Yamaha and it flies. I also had the same motor on a 18ft Grumman and it still did very well. The 40hp will be too heavy for a 14 footer.
