    I'd put a Merc V6 on there. The weight should be pretty similar.
    How much do you want to spend? Carbed 200 Mercs can be had pretty cheap.

    I have a 2.4 200hp complete motor for sale with less than 50hrs on motor and a CLE lower unit with low water pick up that has only 5hrs on it. On my STV it pushed it 93 mph. $3000 shipped

    Anything more than 150hp and you better make sure the transom and stringers are built like a brick sh*t house. I would recommend a 150 V6. Make sure the bottom is straight and you have plenty of setback. Good Luck

    The weight of a 150 V6 is the same as a 200 V6 there is no difference.

    I wouldn't want to run that boat as fast as a 200 will push it.
