Re: 6hp outboard for a 25' boat?

I have a 3500 pound boat with a four stroke six. I have to motor against current. It is more than enough. I have hardly had it past half throttle. I agree about keeping the prop in the water. That's the biggest issue, but then again, if its that choppy you should be sailing!
