I am looking into an outboard for a 19' Grumman Square Stern model.
I am considering a 4Hp Yamaha 4 stroke primarily.
What can you tell me about how the canoe will handle with a 2 HP Honda vs. a 4HP Yamaha vs. the higher HP with a lift.
I am more concerned with deep water performance.
Does a Grumman ever really get up and plane? What kind of speed can I expect?
Also what material should I use to replace the transom wood? 3/4" Marine ply treated?
