Nice, looks like it runs pretty good! Im trying to decide between a 16hp and 22hp on a 14ft alweld. This makes me think the 16Hp would be just fine for me. What do you think?

18 runs pretty good but I am moving up to a 23.seems like there is always more to carry so I want a little more horses for the load. I have never heard anyone say they wish they had a smaller motor so unless you are going to just have 2 people and gear I would go bigger if you have the money in the budget. We have a 1442 with a 12 hp Copperhead that runs great with two but won't get on plane with 3. 16 ought to be fine for 2 plus gear but the boat is small so getting the load in the correct place is key with any boat. Hope this helps.

Haven't GPS yet but guessing 24 to 25 with 1 and goes down as weigh is added. Just put 6 coats of Gator glide so going to run in a week or so and will post
