outboard size for C22

Postby jeremy » Tue Aug 23, 2016 11:58 am

Hi All,
just wondering if someone can help with advice on an outboard for a Careel 22. i'm currently looking at a 5HP 4 stroke Yamaha. will this motor have enough push in a 20knot head wind?? I'm reluctant to go for the Parsuns or other chinese brands.
cheers, Jeremy

I guess somewhere along the way someone made a judgement call on that because the Careel racing regs require a minimum 6 hp outboard for a C22. I know our Commodore Kim (a long time C22L owner) uses a little 6hp outboard for racing but for cruising uses an 8hp Honda.
