That sounds about half the power I would want on it. Not for speed but for powering over waves or when quick acceleration or power is required.Imagine loading the boat with one or two full size buddies, appropriately stocked coolers with ice, full fuel and enough fishing tackle to last four generations and you see what I mean. Oh, but I do like the look of them though. A good friend of mine just bought one (2310) I believe,but had to go back Iraq. No usage or fishing reports yet.Freespool (10/8/2007)Thanks for the replies. The 17 has a 60 on it, I am worried about it being underpowered what do yall think?
