Re: Could 27 hp fit here?

20 hp is probably plenty of power for that boat anyway. Just because it originally had a 30 hp anemic-4 doesn't really mean anything. An A4 was one of the few small inboards available at that time. Having good access to everything on the engine is waaayyy under-rated. If I had my druthers, I would love to have a smaller engine in my boat and forego the extra (and basically unnecessary) few hp I would be losing.
