Just because it has the room doesn't mean it needs the extra power. A smaller engine will weigh less, use less fuel, and usually be cheaper and easier to maintain(particularly when comparing engines within one brand). Besides, they're called SAILboats for a reason.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
