Re: Can I Take It Into The Ocean?

don't see why not I have a 33 foot boat and an 8hp inboard and it does about 6 kts. always sail and power in the ocean. 8 hp is plenty for a 25' boat. the max on that boat is 10 hp. the inboards are better for cruising because the prop stays under water even in big waves. the people you are talking to have no clue.
