I have a quick question, attached is a pic of my boat, she is a 18 foot Valco. Its a pretty light boat, not much too her, I still need to add a floor but its going to be a simple marine plywood typ floor, most likely even go with 1/2" with a bunch of stud spacers.
Anyway, I'm in the market/hunt for a used jet motor. My plan is still to go with newer, but not a 2011 or 12. They are out of my price range. Looking at a 4 or 2 stroke depending on what I can find.
Question is horsepower, tag on transom is 70 hp, for what its worth, so at the pump a 60 or 80 with the 90 or 115. Guy I got the boat from was running a 135 2 stroke johnson.
So my question is 90 or 115 or ? on the boat? My plans for the boat would be fishing rivers in the valley, and down the road running rivers up north for moose.
Thoughts? Also, if anyone has a line on a motor or something they would like to sell I'd be interested. There is not a lot out there for sale right now.
