You never did tell us which boat. I have a Lowe's tahiti TH2210. 22ft aluminum. V hull, but the room of a pontoon. Comes with depth finder(cheap one) and trolling motor. I have a Johnson 150 two stroke. Will do around 45mph with me and wife. thats GPS speed. I had the same type boat with a 3.0(140hp) I/O. would only do 35mph with me and wife, thats speedometer. The 3.0 got good gas mileage. But in cold freezing weather, I had to drain block, etc. after each use. With the outboard I do not have that cold weather problem.
