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.
