    My buddy is looking at a 1860 SeaArk and has the option of a 40hp. 2 stroke Nissan or a 40hp 4 stroke Suzuki. Has anybody had any experience with either?

    I just bought a SeaArk 1660 with a 25 hp 4 stroke Merk and already wish I would have gone with the 1860 and probably a 50 hp 4 stroke. By the time I put all the things I wanted, 60" live well, extra fuel tanks, 70 lb trolling motor, and a few other gadgets it is just a little too small if I take more than one person with me. katcaller

    Seaark makes a great boat but I think that a 40 hp would be way under powered. Both are good realiable motors.

    I agree that the 40hp might not be enough motor. If I had my choice I would go with the 4 stroke motor.

    Have you GPSed your boat? If so how fast is that 150 pusing it? I have the same 2072 hull (not the v-cat it wasen't out in 2006) with a 115 optimax runs 42MPH when it is fully loaded down (water fuel people gear ect.) sometimes I wish I had upgraded to 150hp. If you can send a picture!

    I have a 1760 Weldbilt with a 60 Merc. A 40hp would not be enough.

    I just sold a boat with a 30hp Nissan 2 stroke. I LOVED that motor.
