Re: S2 7.9

Alright, another question regarding the 7.9. What size of outboard is adequate? One of the boats I'm considering has a 5 hp and the other has a 9.8 hp. Is the 5 hp enough, or even if I ended up with that boat, should I consider selling the 5 hp and looking for a 9.8/9.9? I realize that the 5 hp is lighter and thus better suited to the "racing" aspect of the boat, but I'll likely be doing more "cruising" than racing, so the 9.8 appeals to me.. Both engines appear to be of about the same vintage (~5 years old), so that isn't a concern.
