    Make sure you're not underpowered; I put a 75 HP on a 17 foot, and I'm wishing I'd put at least the 90 HP.

    I've heard of a 5 HP per foot of length "rule of thumb". As a minimum, I'd recommend taking that and adding 20% as a reserve.

    I've never heard of anyone who's complained that their motor is too powerful....
