Every time head seas presented a problem with my boat...I had to throttle back not up to make the ride bearable...

The ONLY time I have throttled up in this boat (and usually only 200 rpm or so) was in flat water to overcome a 3 plus knot current or pass some one where passing time was critical.

If/when I repower, I would have no issue with dropping to 80 to 90hp.

But that is me and I'll have to think long and hard if that may affect resale...if I care at that point
