I just brought home the cutest boat ever, but with 2 toasted motors. It's a 16ft fiberglass Dorsett Monterrey - all the info I can find re. weight is ~800 lbs in some promo materials. Went and looked at a 50hp Merc today, but I'm not sure if it's going to be strong enough.
Any thoughts? I've seen the range of 50-85hp for these, but nothing definitive.
Would like to stay with similar vintage - easy to work on, but some upgrades wouldn't be terrible
Thanks in advance.
