Re: 78 helms 24
Our first boat was a Helms 25 (older than the 24, and a swing keel). We used an 8 horsepower longshaft on an adjustable without issue. If you're just motoring in and out of the slip and marina, 4-8hp is plenty. If you plan to motor into head winds/seas in open water, I'd stick to 8hp or maybe a bit larger.
