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.
This advice from someone called "Slow but Steady". I'll consider the source
As I indicated, I also value access (and think the Alberg would still have it with a 28hp motor). I keep hearing the gas verses diesel hp debate. But was told hp is hp, no mater how you get it, torque distribution not withstanding. I've heard of reliability issues, but what made the A4 anemic?
