Ericson 28; Is 10 hp O.K.?

I disagree completely with Blackhole. The weight difference between, say, a 7.5hp and a 10hp engine is negligible. The outboard-powered sailboats that I have owned all have a plate that states the max. horsepower for the hull. I would get the largest engine you can with a long shaft.
