In any event the 2HP is very adequate for us against current and a moderate chop, not fast but it gets us there. Have had it for many years, run hard, no problems. Lots of choices out there now.

OK, maximum speed is 5.4 MPH per GPS, at 6,000 feet elevation which gives a power loss of about 20% which leaves about 1.6 HP. Not too bad for a short boat shaped like a brick.
