Hello All, thank you for taking the time in reading this post.
I am finding it difficult to make a decision on what size outboard to buy for my Hurley 20. When buying the boat as bit of a project the old Johnson 8hp outboard had been left in the water for a number of years so was written off.
Now that I’m looking at a new outboard that are all 4 stroke they seem to be a lot bigger in physical size. So my question to anyone who has a Hurley 20 is what’s the biggest size outboard that can fit in the outboard well and what HP rating would you recommend.
I calculated that I would need a 4hp but there’s a lot of disagreement at my club, as they feel that its not enough to punch a 4 knot tide. (my boat is in a very strong tidal river)
Thanks for taking the time in helping me
