I'm ready to purchase a motor for a 16' Lund that will be used primarily on the river here in Kenai. I was going for a 25hp Merc but the Sales person suggested a 20hp Tohatsu that is much lighter (#47). His feeling is more power will be obtained from the lighter motor.
I 'm wondering if this is good advise. Also, feelings any of you have on the Tohatsu motors will be appreciated.
Oh, I generally fish with 2 in the boat.
