Default 19 Cape Horn what motor?

What motor on the original 19ft hull do you have. Currently have a 150, but feel like it could use more power. Just wanted to see what was working for other people out there. Is more power worth the loss of fuel mileage.

I have a 225 Yamaha OX66 on mine. In my opinion it would be slightly under powered with a 150. I am getting around 1.73 mpg cruising at 22kts and am pleased with that. My intentions were to use a 200 but ran up on a good deal with the 225.

150 yamaha SHO
No need to go any faster my boat hits 55mph down wind and current. Save the money save the fuel 150 will get it done at a lower cost all around

Although I have a SX200 skeeter for the 150hp
But my 17' mako rides out at 35mph with a 70hp suzuki
How fast do you want to go?
You can also try a 4 blade prop it will get you out the hole faster

If you are a member of the SKA I would without a doubt put twin 300 four strokes.

Really most of the time you cant go wide open because of seas. A 150 is fine for a 19 ft. Horn. I have a 150 on a 20.6 wellcraft. Rarely run over 4200 RPMs. I get about 2 mpg. Loaded with dive gear 60 gallons fuel and once in a while fish. 😡

Stick with the 150...I have an old 130 2 stroke on a 21 foot ...does 35mph....look into getting the premium pitched prop for your 150...

Not real sure why all the speed is so necessary. I have a 115 Suzuki 4-stroke pushing a 19' CC bay boat that tops out at 45mph. Fuel lasts forever. My brother, and many others, always regretted his larger marine engines simply because of the fuel costs. Save ur money for a new AG NaCl and strong Volatile rod.

I guess I should state the 150 is the original 1994 motor on the boat. So I am pretty sure the 150hp is not up there any more either

Trim tabs. Helps in lots of areas, coming to plane and leveling out the bumps. And, increased fuel mileage.
