Headhunter,
That is why I was asking about putting one on that was bigger than it was rated for.
I want a yamaha but they have a BIG hole in their lineup in my opinion, if what I saw was accurate.
I kept looking and all I could find was either 25 or 40, nothing in between.

I will agree with TT to a point, I definately ain't after speed, just enough power to get back safely if the wind was to get up and I get caught out.
Just don't think a 25 will do it.

Thanks for everyone's input,,,, 'cept TT. He is an idiot.

I have a 9'6" kayak, a paddle, two arms, and one hand (I didn't mistype that). I've been on Pickwick lake within sight of the dam with a hard south wind rolling white caps down the river, and I did just fine.

I think 25 hp will do. Besides, what are life jackets for anyways? \:D

You may want to check with your insurance company on the maximum hp allowed. They used to allow a slight overage to accommodate gaps in the motor lineup like you are finding.

Mercury offers a 30 hp before jumping up to a 40. Keep in mind, like was posted before, it is probably a bit heavier than your 35 you have now. Yes, we sell just motors.

I went out Sat and caught a few. Didn't get any bass just bluegill. There was about the most people out there I have ever seen since the opening day back about 1960. Lots of boats and bank fishers, but not too bad.

You and Man about ready to get up a trip to the White River for trout sometime this summer? I am still on to take y'all if you want to go sometime.
