What size motor would be best (or do you have) for ...

4 hp would work ( but you might have push the throttle if there is any type of current going against your boat) I have a 6hp 4 stroke Nissan and it pushes my 22'' at hull speed at 3/4 throttle. Get the 20"long shaft. A short shaft can cavitate in any type of chop
