40HP too much?

Ok, thanks guys. And any words on Misty River? They look good, but I've been looking it up and I've found they've gone outta business. Is this a bad thing? Because I'm in love with this boat.

40HP too much?

I would obviously never pin it. From what i can see it looks pretty deep too, if that would help keep the back outa the water.

It a super nice boat: https://saskatchewan.kijiji.ca/c-cars-ve ... Z277514786

40HP too much?

Hey guys. I was just wondering if a 1993 40HP Mercury was too much for a 16' Misty River. The boat is covered in Marine plywood, so that would add some weight. And anyone know why Misty River was closed?
Thanks guys.

Looks a in a lot worse condition in the pics. It is in nice shape for being a '73. Anyway, see the board on the right hand side of the trailer?

Thanks for the replays guys!

Not mine, but similar idea. Their is a small 'board' running from front to back, just on the right side. Like it is under the rollers.

New Boat!

Hey guys. About 6 hours ago i purchased my first aluminum, a 1973 14' Lund, with a 1988 15HP Johnson, with electric start. I have a few questions. First, what oil should i use? Would it be available at a BRP dealer? What ratio should i run? And should i pump the ball so its hard? Or just ____ times?...

Merc 7.5

Would a 7.5 Mercury be able to put a 14' tin on plane? The boat weighs about 175 lbs, and the people/equipment would weigh roughly 500 pounds. And in general, is this a decent motor? Not sure on the year, looks roughly 1970ish.

Thanks guys.

A Few Questions...

Ok. I am buying from the dealer. I will get the new boat and trailer, but the engine will be used. I found a 1975 20HP Johnson on Kijiji, can't afford new. Ill have to get it out and try it to see if it is even stable enough. It got tons of ribs, but its still pretty narrow. And after reading this: ...

A Few Questions...

And, if i were to put a trolling motor on, should i putt off the front of back? Or would i be just as well using...
