Am repowering '87 Outrage 22 with whaler drive. Have tried twin 130 hp Honda 4-strokes but found them too heavy for safe operation in even moderate seas offshore. Any information as to maximum safe weight(and best motor choice) would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have an '88 22' Whaler with Whaler Drive and am thrilled with the performance of a single 250hp Yamaha EFI. It is more than enough power (45mph loaded down) and 3mpg at many RPM's.
