i can get a yamaha V4 115hp 2 stroke for a great price. is that too much motor for my 1966 nauset? should i let it go and keep looking for something in the 80-100hp range?

I would look at the weight of the Engine.

For the 2002 Evinrudes, the 75 HP, 90 HP, and the 115 HP all weigh exactly the same with the 20" shaft..... 362 lbs.....
Why would anyone want to put anything less on the back of their boat in this category except the 115 HP????

Even Coast Guard Regulations don't restrict you from putting on the larger horsepower.

Even though the boat is rated for 100 HP, the extra 15 HP wouldn't make that much difference except in top speed... You don't have to use the extra HP, but it's there if you need it.....

What's the great price?

I would go for it if it's a good price.

I have a 1971 Nauset with a 1986 Yamaha 115hp. We have owned the boat since new. Orignal engine was a 100hp Johnson. Boat runs 47mph. It rides safe. We waterski off it all the time. I highly recommend this set up.There are no trim issues or weight issues. We did change to No Feed back cable steering a few years back. This was probably just as necessary with the 100 as the 115. Good Luck

$1250 is cheap! I almost bought one but the shaft was a 25". Damn thing was BRAND new 01 leftover for $3250. I was mad until he showed me my engine and my frown turned upside down:)
