I'm trying to decide what would be the best motor size for a 16' StarCraft Super Sport V Aluminum Bowrider rated up to 85HP. Would a 70HP OMC 3 cyl compared to the V-4 85 or 90HP perform almost as weel due to the wieght difference. The boat is used primarily for water sports (Low end power) and cruising. Tilt and Trim is a must any which way due to the capacity of passengers in the bow. Anyone have thoughts? I currently have a 1974 65HP Mercury that performs ok but, I'd like to improve on this performance.
