We had a Coronado 25 on San Francisco bay. Started with a 6HP which was OK for calm waters but at times marginal for inside and outside the bay. Went to a 15HP and it was plenty. Probably a 9.9HP would have been OK.
Suggest you go for a long shaft and stay with the well. Have seen a number of good looking motors on our local Craigslist. If I was to do it over I would get an electric start motor. good luck in your search.
