So, after the recent moose hunt, the limitations of the 17.5' Ak with a 115 on it became apparent.
I really like the boat, the design just gets her done, and the narrower width sure is handy. It has the room i need, no question there.
Theoretically, putting a 130-140 Hp on her should get the heavier load on step quicker and easier than the 115? Or is this just wishfull thinking and it would be better to get a wider and longer rig?
Any thoughts on E-TEC's vs Suzuki? A 140 Suzuki is going to be in the same ballpark weight wise as my current Evinrude 115.
