Hello Everybody !

New to this board.... Need an opinion... I am from Canada...Just bought a Hunter 35.5 Legend in Punta Gorda Florida and will leave it there.

My question: The boat come with a 9 foot dinghy with and a 1995 Tohatsu 5 hp 2 stroke. I have a brand new Yamaha 2.5 hp 4 stroke. Should I use the old Tohatsu or bring down my Yamaha to use on the dingy ?
Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks JB

If it don't... why ask.... its obvious....

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I'd say that either outboard would work just as well so use up the Tohatsu and keep the Yamaha for backup.
kind regards,

Bring the new one for backup if you want to. It's light and easy to store..
