Ok, I got carpet going in. Ordered the seats. Need to order a cover.
I have a 50hp Mercury engine on a 20ft Suntracker.
How big can I go? I think I heard once that 75hp was the biggest b/c I could tear open the toons?
Any info would be cool!
Thanks!

I have a 20' 1993 tracker and it is rated for 90 HP. I have a 2013 90hp pontoon series Evinrude motor that I am very happy with.

I have a 24 ft harris that I have a 75 on it. I run 19 mph GPS, with my family on it. 7 - 8 of us.

I think it is more the stiffness of the deck and transom than ripping the toons open... Don't think they are made different even on the tri toons and I have seen 300's on some of those
