  • ENOUGH ENGINE

    My 1999 135 hp optimax took a dump so I have to repower my 1999 195 dual console. I have my eye on a 2005 115hp optimax with low hrs. Is the 115hp enough hp for my boat. Thanks

    under powered is miserable - 135 optipop was a V6- the 115 is a 4 cylinder- there is a lot more than 20hp difference in the functional power from these 2 engines.

    The used optis do sell cheap- wonder why? you know why.

    You can get can get a new 4 stroke 150 merc for a few bucks over 10k-

    with a simple plug and play adapter your wiring and control will fit-

        The 115hp is a 3 cylinder.
