How many is in the family ?? A 40 will certainly be better than a 30, it comes down to $$$$

I've got a 4.2m tinnie and the 40hp is the way to go. IMHO the 30hp would be doing too much work all the time.

What ^^^^^^ they said...
The 30hp E-tec would struggle to get that boat up on a plane with a full family and all your gear for day on the water.. The 4st would have no chance unless you propped it very, very low...

Get a 40hp the 30 is going to struggle...
