I purchased my 1995 220 Overnighter this last spring. When I bought it I also opted to purchase the 15hp Mercury kicker. We did not get around to using the kicker this summer as I am a new boater and I wanted to make sure I was comfortable with the boat before I started playing with all the “extras”. I have already winterized the boat and do not plan to have it back in the water this year. We plan to purchase a swim platform and install it this winter, but I am trying to decide if I want to have the platform reinforced for the kicker. For those who fish with a kicker, is the 15hp going to be too much for lake trolling? I do not plan to have this boat in a flowing river as I live just 30 minutes from Lake Roosevelt in Washington. Lots of open water here. I was leaning towards getting an electric, but I think for the weight of this boat I would need a pretty darn big one. I have a buddy who uses his electric for getting in real close to the shore with very precise movements. Can someone provide me with pros and cons of a kicker over an electric?
