Re: Universal M5411 Engine 11HP

I have a 31ft boat, about the same dimensions as the C30 (but less beamy with a more pointy bow), with the 5424. I always cruise at about 1/2 throttle, which gives just over 6 kts. Recently I was powering into a chop to make the last 1/2 mile into a marina, and the boat was slowing down to 5 kts. Now and then you'd get 2 or 3 larger waves in succession, and the speed would drop off to 4 kts or less.

I think 24hp is about right.

I've sailed a Catalina 27 with the 11hp, and that felt a bit underpowered.

Re: Universal M5411 Engine 11HP

my thanks to all for great information. I do not own a sailboat, yet, I but am looking primarily in Maine after taking sailing lessons at "Sail Maine". Learned a lot and so much more to learn but looking forward to owning my own boat. I greatly appreciate you experienced in put on the Catalina engine.
