We are going back and forth between these two setups. We are a family
of 5. I weigh 210, my wife 130, and kids
140, 60 and 50. We will be storing the AB on deck
via a halyard
hoist and the outboard
on the stern rail. Wondering how these will perform MOST of the time for our needs re: speed/plane vs weight/expense. The 15hp and 20hp weight the same. Most of the time it's simply to get to shore. But we do enjoy crabbing, and or course, sometimes fast is fun. Cost difference between setups is about $750. Thanks for your input.
