I have a 1994 Seafarer 226, and I am going to repower with a new motor. Had a 225 Otibomb, that pushed the boat real good when it worked. I am thinking about putting a Suzuki 250, but I'm worried about the extra weight? Thought, suggestions?

I put a 2018 Mercury Verado 300 on mine. I redid the transom and added a flotation bracket. I think you'll find some great 4 strokes out there that are a bit lighter. My boat sits perfectly with this motor on it. I love it.

I have a 1999 - 226 seafarer and did the suzuki 250. The weight of the 225 and the 250 is the same. Runs great weight wasn’t an issue.
