To some extent it depends on where you are sailing in Florida and what you want to do with the boat. I had Outboard powered boats in the Miami area and they were OK. Further north or out in the Gulfstream things get very bumpy and I was not pleased with how outboards worked in the short chop. St. Augustine inlet in particular can be tough to get into and trying to slip in can really require an engine you can count on.

But while I personally do not like outboards for that area, there are many people who do and get by with them.
