I have a 16ft jon boat and just wondering if this 2.5 hp mercury has enough power to push 2 people around the lake?
Asked by: jug buster
Hello, jug buster.
The Mercury Marine 2.5 HP 4-Stroke Outboard Motor has a hp range that is common for use on portable boats such as canoes, folding boats, inflatable boats, dinghies, 8-10 ft. jon boats and other small or light watercraft. You will, probably, need at least a 5 hp motor and possibly even larger if you want it to be able to push your boat (with 2 occupants) at a decent speed. We would suggest checking your boat for the tag / plate that identifies the maximum hp rated for your boat as this will let you know what you cannot exceed.

I have small pontoon boat 12 ft long. Will 2.5 motor be large enough or need 5hp?
Asked by: TC56
The Mercury Marine 2.5 HP 4-Stroke Outboard Motor will be able to move a 12 poontoon but at very low speeds. A more powerful motor would be required for higher speeds.
