It seems that everyone here has good opinions on picking the right motor for a boat, so here's my question. I am purchasing a Starcraft 16 foot dual console which weighs in around 785 pounds with a max horsepower rating of 75. It comes standard with a 50 merc which I originally planned on upgrading to a 60. Now I am thinking maybe going with the 75 is a better choice. The tradeoff is that the 75 will add another 100 pounds to the total weight. The 60 weighs around 215 pounds and the 75 is somewhere around 310 or 315. I was thinking that the extra hundred pounds in a boat this size is alot for the motor and will offset some of the horsepower gains. The price difference is about 1000 dollars but I am not that concerned about it. Thoughts?
