Default New Honda BF100 or 115 on a 1775 Impact SS

Im going to be ordering a new boat in a few weeks. My first choice was a Honda 90..Then I saw the new model BF100. Has anybody know or had experience with this engine? Ive read good reviews. I'd like the 115 but its another 100lbs. The Boat is only 1200lbs not adding fuel,Batteries,and all the other stuff we load.And myself!!
I'm sticking with a Honda motor. Max hp is 125 for that model...I read some of you have 115 on your 1775 impact. Do you feel its too "rear end heavy"

Thanks

I had a 2005 1700 hundred fisherman some years ago it weighed 1300ish it would be real similar your hull it was rated for a 150, it had a 140 Zuk 4 stroke and a 8hp Yamaha kicker four stroke never thought it was to heavy. Personally I would put as close to the max hp I could.

I have a Merc 115 hp 4S on my 1775 Impact. I don't think that it is too heavy. I have the stock Black Max 19P prop on it and it performs very well. If someone made a 125 hp motor it would be nice on that boat.

Default 1775 Lund Impact

I have a 2012 Lund Impact 1775 sport with a Mercury 115 4 stroke. Overall very happy with the set up and don't find the boat to be rear heavy. Performance is great for me at 42 mph on the gps and good holeshot. I'm running the 17 pitch spitfire aluminum prop. I'm not sure off hand how the 115 Honda compares in weight with a 2012 115 Merc 4 stroke but I'm guessing very similar. One of the dealers in Winnipeg routinely installs 115 Honda's on their 1775 Impact and i think it would be a great match for the boat. Honda's are excellent reliable outboards and would buy one in a heartbeat.

I ordered a 1775 SS last month. Dealer sells both Honda and Mercury. I went with the Mercury 115 due to it being 100+ lbs lighter than the Honda. But I am also putting on a Honda 9.9 kicker.

That Merc 115 (built 2015 and later) is a sweet sweet thing. BIL put one on his 1775 and I am jealous. Excellent choice. I have Hondas on my rig including the 9.9. Have they done FI on that yet? My 9.9 is carbureted, a little cold blooded, but once she warms up it purrs all day without a burp. I like it but think I'd prefer FI if available.

Unfortunately the Honda 9.9 is still a carb. engine. I fish a couple restricted hp lakes and need the 9.9. Only 9.9 efi I know is Suzuki, and closest dealer is 100+ miles away.

Thanks guys, Like to know why the huge difference in weight between the two. Actually its 119lbs difference. I have nothing against Merc. but when it comes to four strokes Honda is a sure bet.

My dad had one of the first Honda 130HP ever made. That was a fantastic motor. I have a Honda 7.5hp 4 stroke from the mid 80's that always starts on the first pull. You won't be disappointed with a Honda. As for power, I did not max out my HP on my boat and the only time I can say I'm a little underpowered is when I have 4 in the boat and am towing a tube.

I know a lot of guys say max out the HP but I think a 90 or 100 will do just fine on that boat.
