Re: 2 or 4 stroke for 25\' open sled

I don't think weight or balance would be much of a factor with a 25' sled. That's a lot of hull. I'm assuming it doesn't have a lot of deadrise, probably less than 10 degrees.
Like Flatfish, I'd want the 2-stroke for jet applications. Not to mention there's a $3K difference between a 225 4-stroke Merc and a 250 2-stroke. That $3K would cover the cost of the jackplate you'd need to switch from pump to prop easily.
I'd run the biggest, baddest Merc or Yamahammer I could find.
Just my .02. There's a lot of 4-stroke fanatics here, and I'm sure they'll be along shortly. :wink:
