Re: Standard diesel for Bristol 29.9?
It might also be that the broker is using the std HP one can use ALL the time, ie 12HP, and the 15 hp is the 30 min max useage. I'm recalling my 85 2gm18 is 18 all the time, up to 20 intermittent in its rpm useage.
A motor that size will move your boat. but if it gets rough, fast current etc.....you may be slowing down some. My 7K boat does that with a 2blade prop! A 3 would be better.....
