    Default new to the world of SLT - Lots of questions that I'm having a difficult time getting.

    I had a small 10.5 cat and recently upgraded to a larger 13.5.

    First question - engines? I had a 30hp Mercury that smoked a lower end so I was able to barrow a 30hp Etec and the boats still to slow so I figure I'll upgrade to a "race legal" bandit class engine. but I'm not sure what one?

    My choice(s)
    1997 Mercury 40hp/4cyl
    2002 Mercury 40hp/3cyl
    2004 Yamaha 50hp/3cyl.

    I'm getting very mixed reviews on each, also with these motors hitting the scales near 200lbs will the transom hold? I know everyone is running them but are the added extra support?

    This is a picture of my current boat. I just set up a primitive hoist to lift it in and out easy behind the house.

    I'd go with the Yammi, better gear ratio & displacement. The short shaft manual start weighs around 165lb.

    It's not a motor issue you have a SuX that's the problem you can't make that boat go fast off a cliff just use it as a dinghy and be happy

    Worked well with the Merc, all-be it slow(er) and the lower froze making it really slow.
