New to this posting stuff so I hope I'm doing it right. I've got the chance to pick up a 20' VPLD for cheap. Once in a lifetime deal. The only thing is I can't afford a motor for it right now. Maybe in a year or two. I almost bought a small pontoon boat last year, but got a crestliner jon with a 25 efi 4 stroke instead. I thought about selling the boat and trailer and sticking the motor on the SA. I know there's no way it would plane off with that 25, but I wonder if it would push me around fast enough to cover a couple of 2-3,000 acre lakes in the neighborhood. I troll most of the time now anyway. If I knew I could roll around those lakes at 8-10mph, I'd get it. I saw a guy in a 20' lund Alaskan over the weekend, moving around on the lake with a 9.9 at about 8-10mph. I was surpised. The ower said the lund runs over a 1000lbs, similar to the vpld. If I could do what he did, that would be fine with me until I could afford to scale my power up down the line. Any thoughts on my predicament?
