Re: Universal M5411 Engine 11HP

I had a Catalina 30. You will be underpowered. I had an M25, and that was the correct size.

You won't be able to make much progress against heavy seas and wind with that engine., and that can be dangerous.

That being said, are there heavy seas and wind where you will be sailing?
