Long 2 or short 4 outboard? V21
Bought a V21. My V17 came with a short 4 which was more than adequate but in chop the prop would come out of the water sometimes. I got a long shaft Honda 2 which I love. Just perfect for the 17. The new 21 doesn't come with an outboard - but I have these two perfectly good, ultra reliable motors in my garage. I use the short 4 on a crabbing boat so I can't get rid of that unless I buy some other short shaft motor to replace it.
My question - will the 2 be adequate? Or will a short shaft work in chop?
If a short shaft is fine but 2HP (or 4) isn't enough, I'll sell both and get a 6 or 8, or 9.9
Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
