    It's rated for 90hp without the side console or floor. Can go up to 150 if it had a floor and side console. That's why I'm kinda leaning towards a 90hp

    I had a Grizzly 2072 with a custom aluminum permanent blind and I think it ran in the mid/high 30's with a 1992 - 90hp V4 Johnson.

    Either the 70 or 90 would push it fine. As you said, the 70 is a log lighter. I have the Yamaha f70 on my bigger boat (not a duck boat) ....... 26', 7'9" beam, pushing @3300-3500 lbs at a top speed of 22-23mpg. Great outboard.

    Any horsepower over the hull sticker will also disqualify any insurance claims. They will take your money but when the time comes after an accident...sorry.. you are over the manufactures hp rating.

    I've got a 115 Merc Command Thrust on my 1872 SeaArk. It runs 38-40 with 3 guys, a hard sided aluminum blind and a hunting load.
