I'm writing from Venice - Italy.
I found a ring 18 used in good condition and I would like to mount my engine - a Mercury Verado 200 hp, 4 cylinder, weight 235 kg (519 lb)
The boat can go well with this engine or is it too heavy?
Now the boat is equipped with a 135 hp Mercury 2 stroke mounted on cmc jackplate, if I remove the cmc plate and mount the Verado on the transom of the boat that will work well?
I suspect the Verado 200hp is too heavy and could damage or cause the boat to go wrong.
What do you think? Any advice or experience?
Thanks you so much
