If I wait till spring then it will not be till like mid summer that I can sail it.

So say for a 27' moderate displacement boat, what would be the least amount oh horse power to be able to sail at hull speed?

I am looking at a 87 hunter 23' that comes with 5 hp outboard and a trailer. What do u think that's worth?
The turn off is that there no toiliet (for lack of a better term) in it and it does look small inside.
My 8,000 lb Nor'Sea has a 10 horse Yanmar in it. 5 would be plenty for the Hunter.

I have no clue what it's worth. for that you'll need to check your local market, your wallet, and your heart. 23 is pretty small inside. Nor'Sea 27 isn't huge, you know.
