well i finally did it, i replaced my 20 year old motor with a new 2002 25 hp merc 2 stroke . Is anyone running the 25 stroke on a older 13? If so what kind of performance are getting? Iam hoping for enough power to be able to plane properly with three adults (approx 450 lbs) and 3 small kids(approx 150 lbs). This is a short shaft on a 1967 boat should i mount the engine flat on transom or slightly raised?

i used have a 28 spl. omc on my 13, she is no problem on plane with 3 adults, just give her little more time, your 25 hp.should be fine , but not sure 3 adults and 3 kids on board at the same time???? , i don't think you need to rise your short shaft motor,
