- Nov 16, 2012Good points Susanne. Also consider that automobile engines typically only run @ about 20% of rated max HP around 80% of the time (coasting, idling at the stop light, flat terrain cruising etc).On the other hand, when you consider hull drag, prop thrust and friction, marine engines are constantly going uphill towing a trailer and are designed accordingly. My recommendation is a 4 stroke outboard until you get into larger boats where a diesel inboard makes more sense.
