Thank you for your input. Just priced out a 25 Yamaha and a new mechanical steering kit. Looks like we are good to go except for the wait on delivery of the new outboard. I am attaching a photo of the boat.

I have a 25Hp Yamaha 4 stroke on my Vagabond. It's a 2001 and heavier than the newest models. It scoots right along, with just me it can go 27 mph. Thats with my new trim tilt that I just got on two weeks ago. That added 2-3

mph.

A 16ft runabout is a decent size boat and many are equipped with 35-40 hp two strokes. (Mark 55 Merc 111/lbs) A 4- stroke Yamaha only weighs 126/lbs. That is not much difference.

Regarding transoms, most use wood to build strength and without seeing the boat in question it would be difficult to make any recommendations.

Hello All: I am a new member and although I do not own a Feathercraft, I have a customer that does. He has a 16' runabout powered by an Evinrude 25hp. He would like to have me repower it with a Yamaha within the 25hp range. I will have further details regarding the specific model and year to follow in another post but was curious too know if anyone else has done this and what advice you might have. My first guess is the weight of the new motor might be of concern as well as the transom configuration and strength. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
