    85 vs 110 on the speedster

    Have trying to sell a twin 85 SK 16.5 speedster who says that there isn't much difference from it to the 110hps. I find it really hard to believe. Top speed may be close but I cant imagine that the power is even close.
    Any thoughts?

    IMO, the twin 85's are too small for that Boat. The Boat itself is too bulky and to me, it just seems there is "too much" of it for the 85's to handle. The 110's are the absolute smallest motors that should be in it, but if I were to build the boat, and still keep a 2-stroke in it, twin 951's all the way.

    But back to your question...if the 85hp and the 110hp are both flowing through the same size pump, then yea, I would think the overall Top Speed would be pretty much the same, and the 110hp motors would get you there just a tick faster than the 85hp motors, but I don't think it would be an Earth Shattering difference, or really anything too noticeable.

    I wish the Challenger 1800 that my dad and I have had twin 951cc di engines. More power and less fuel usage than the current carbed 787s
