My Cal25 came with a 10hp honda. It was about on it's last leg, but still had plenty of power to push her. We get pretty tide running out of the bayou that our marina is in when the tide is going out. The 10hp had problems with cranking so I bought a 2 stroke 6hp. It was okay but I felt better with the extra power that the 10hp had. My next project is to convert to a hybred. I intend to pull the powerhead off of the old 10hp and replace it with an 30 or 40hp electric motor.
