Hey Guys, I'm looking at getting a Lowe 14ft Model 1448 MV Big Jon 21" Sport. It comes with a Tohatsu 18 HP Motor. It's a side console model, so I'm wondering if this is overkill for this type of boat or does it beat the tiller steering out by a whole lot? I don't believe it forfeits to much room but I could be wrong. I was wondering if any of you guys have any experience with this model boat and could give me a general outline on this type of setup and what I could expect in the water. I'm not sure what kind of performance and stability this boat will offer. Thanks a lot.
