Hi all,
I am going to re-power my year 2000 205 Osprey. I had a 130 Ocean Pro that came with it (I know it's undersized). I used to get 28mph riding alone with 3/4 tank of gas, almost WOT. Blew head after 16 years. Use boat exclusively for fishing but would like to run 30 miles to wrecks without spending hours driving. Boat is used in Sandy Hook NJ area. Looking at 150 to 200 Small block Evinrude e-tec's. Looking for engine that will give me 35mph cruising and maybe 40mph WOT if needed. Anyone have this boat with a 150, 175 or 200 small block e-tec? If so, what do you get mph cruising? WOT?

The big question is how much weight you'll carry on a typical offshore run. If it's three or four guys bottom fishing...max out the HP.

Go with the 200hp 2.6L Etec. They are all the same motor just differnt computer programs. The Etec will burn less fuel and have crazy torque

Just repowered my 222CCP with a Merc 200 Optimax - and all I can say is "wow!" The 3 liter Optimax is fast! Gobs of torque and gets good mileage throughout the range until you get near WOT - then the 10:1 factor comes in - a 200 HP motor will use about 20 GPH at WOT - I the Optimax pulls 18.

At just over 500 lbs, the V6 Optimax is the same weight at the ETEC 200HO (3.3L), but heavier than the ETEC 200 (2.6L). One thing to consider is controls, rigging. and gauges - the prices of the motors might be one thing - but if you have to get special controls and/or new gauges and rigging the price can go WAY up!

That boat is rated for a 225. So 200 would be great good luck

I cant believe I am going to say this sSc_help

but going 35 miles off shore in the Atlantic off the New Jersey coast, I would opt for twin 115's.

I can believe you said it.

Twins are great for many reasons.

Peace of mind leads the pack.

twins would be a stretch. a 200 would do just fine. i like that old rule of thumb, more power than what you need until you need it.

Yes, twin 115's would be sweet! sHa-shakeshout But that's at least 750 lbs on the transom whether you choose Merc or Etec. sSc_eek Space is also an issue, plus controls and gauges.
