E,

I had posted re my experience with a Coronado 25. Long story short,had a 6hp and it was marginal for SF Bay conditions except for dead calm conditions. Went to a 15hp, same size and weight as a 9.9hp, the 15 would drive the boat as fast as it would go against heave wind and seas. A 9.9 may have been OK, bottom line, the 15 flat got the job done.
