I'm taking my Mac25 to the Bahamas
. Yeah, I know, I'm crazy.
I already knew that. I like the boat, because it does a few things others can't: float when swamped, right itself when capsized, go into 18" of water
(like a lot of places I hang out), and is easily trailerable.
That said, I don't plan to take it across the Atlantic, but I do want to be prepared for big waves, and am thinking of getting a larger engine
than the Suzuki Out8 that's on there. Hullspeed is around 6.5, and the Suzuki does the trick, but I think safety
and control would be positively affected by something larger and more powerful to maneuver the boat in heavy weather
Anybody want to weigh in? I know I read a TON of helpful info on this subject here once, but can't find it now...
