Thanks for the replies guys, I had seen numerous mentions of them being around the 170kg mark on the net which i thought was very light. Only slightly heavier than the Yamaha V4 i have at the moment. Intresting, im guessing a 200 black max on a P16 would be a bit of a handful?

Yeah its under 170kg. I used to have a evinrude 175 v6 (similar weight) on a stripped out phantom 16 and I didnt think it was a handful at all. Used mine mainly in a bay though so not really rough waters.

I use to race a phantom 16 with an Evinrude etec90 it use to go upto 55mph in the sea. I still hold 1 speed record for it set in coniston at about 50mph ( fresh water less buoyant).
Main problem was bows to light in anything but the flattest of seas. I use to move the fuel tank forward and add lead to two posts with bolts coming out.

If your going to run a 200 on a 16 then buy a cleaver prop so you are at least lifting the arse of the boat and not the nose.

Anyway Kieth Whittle at PowerTech marine on Hayling Island currently has a 16 phantom that needs a new transome, might be worth having and updating it a BT to suit your merc.
