Alright I have researched this some by digging up old posts, but cant find anything that I believe yet!
Some people say its enough power, some say no. Ak Mining says it will be OKAY
This weekend I was running my boat on the river (25 prop) at 25mph downstream, 16mph upstream. This was with 3 pretty big guys. I find that speed acceptable.
I plan on day fishing trips, light overnighters and just tooling around with my boat. I really like that Honda 35 jet. I spoke with a couple guys at the launch that were running one. They really liked it and said it made there 16foot g3 work good. They looked like they had a lot of gear too. The g3 is about 100 lbs heavier than my boat.
Also I wonder if I ought to go remote steer with that motor? There is a sticker on my boat that says engine weight not to exceed 220 lbs or boat performance will be affected.
