When it comes to propulsion systems for small watercraft, outboard motors are the most common and convenient options available. These self-contained units act as the craft’s engine, propeller, and gearbox, making them easy to use and perfect for trollers, recreational fishermen, or any other water enthusiast. As with any other component or part for your boat, you should make sure that you make an informed decision when you purchase an outboard motor for your boat. Besides finding something that will fit within your budget, you also need to consider size, horsepower, maintenance, and other factors when selecting your outboard motor.

What Size Motor do You Need?

When it comes to selecting the right size motor for your boat, you need to figure out how you intend to use it. For example, a smaller motor is perfect for more relaxed activities like fishing, cruising the lake at low speeds, or just taking the family out for an evening ride. However, if you plan on using the boat at higher speeds for activities like water skiing, or if you’re going to have more people while cruising the lake, then you are going to need a larger motor that can give you the necessary performance. While larger outboard motors give you more versatility through more horsepower, you can dial them in so it performs at the rate you need it to.
