Hi Paul, welcome aboard :respect
As said, that sib is a heavy old brute, but very capable too.
Do you actually have the 9.9hp you mention or were you thinking of buying one of those?
It’s the old finance vs power vs weight topic, finding something suitable and practice to suit yours and the boats requirements.

Martin :cheers

Hi guys.

He already has the suzuki 9.9hp it was the aux outboard from his 16ft fiberglass boat.

The 9.9hp will be used for pottering about in the bay at runswick bay.
