Storman-After sseing your post and what you are running for a kicker, a lot of thinking and reading on this I decided to go with the Yami T25 instead of the T9.9. While neighter of these kickers will get the boat up on plane and my maximum hull speed (about 7knts calculated so say 6knts actual) won't change I am sure that if we are beating against a head wind I'd much rather have the extra ponies (inwhich case the extra HP of the 25 would keep the boat at least near the hull speed-whereas the 9.9 might not be able to). And if we do have to limp home I'd much rather be doing so at 4K rather than at WOT. At any rate the price difference isn't enough to make it a deal killer and the extra weight is more than made up for in the big single vs the twins. Now I just need to wait to get my new boat wet.....TriIron
Nice set up! I have a 24' pacific cruiser with that new Yamaha 300 and love it. While breaking it in on a local lake this summer, I hit 55mph GPS speed! I went with the T-25 kicker and couldn't be happier.
