Re: Recommended Engine for Walker Bay 310 RID (10ft)
Each boat sold in the US has a plaque on it with the max payload, POB and HP rating on it. I would guess this information is available through the vender or manufacturer, as well.
Given the maximum POB and HP rating you can then figure the optimum HP for your needs; One person, less HP, 2 or 3 people then more HP to achieve your desired speed/comfort.
Then its a simple matter of going to the bank and taking a second (or is it third?) mortgage out on your home, to finance your dink.
