  • Proper engine size for 97 CSkiff J19 w/center console...25, 40, 60, 75? Shaft length?

    I'm new to the forums and have recently purchased a used 19' Carolina Skiff, flat hull. (It's a 1997, J19 I believe.) I was originally thinking of mounting a Honda or Yamaha 25hp 4 stroke, but after talking to my pops who's a captain, I wonder if a 60 would be better? Would a 40 push her alright? Also, the previous owner seemed to like both a 20" and 25" shaft length...which is better for this boat? I live in Los Angeles County and hope to use the boat in lakes, bays, and occasionally the ocean. Thanks in advance to all of you!!
