My wife has given me the green light to purchase a nice kicker for my 27' bayliner discovery. I have a fiberglass swim step that currently holds a big yeti type cooler that I use for my live-well. There is a kicker plate on that swim step for a kicker, but the guy who had it before me just put a 3hp on there for his dingy on the roof.
My question is what type of kicker should I get for my 27' bayliner? Long shaft of course, but does the fiberglass swim step have enough umph to hold say a 25hp kicker? I like the way my main engine trolls, so it wouldn't be for that, this is a get home/get safe motor. Thanks
