    I was talking about a second motor, not swapping lower unit... some time in the future when the need arises and I have the cash. Oh, and yeah boston whaler would be my first choice in a hull, but they come at a premium comparatively so only if a really great deal presents itself.

    I'd love to swap out my 9.9 hp 4-stroke for a 25 hp or 30 hp 4-stroke prop with power tilt 'n trim, and a hydraulic jackplate. Thats over $4 grand, though, and not in the immediate future.
    I might install an inexpensive manual jackplate for the time being, so I can find the "sweet spot" for prop height. I think I need to raise my motor mount a good 1.5" anyway.
