    A 50 should plane it off and run it pretty fair. My bud, peglegreb has a 70 (tiller steer) on his 16 Ski Barge, and it runs well so a 50 should do it.There should be a plate on the transom of the boat telling what the max hp for that boat is. These wide, flat boats are not designed for speed. I have a 200 on my 20 foot Ski Barge, and it will only run 45 mph.

    The Barges are the heat for comfort and room. I think you would be well pleased with it. If it's a little rough, but not too bad, that's PERFECT! :-) You don't want to take anything too nice on a catsmackin' venture!
