I'm going to have a 15'4" built for the shallow Bama creeks I like to fish. I see a lot of Gheenoes listed with 15HP outboards despite the 10HP rating. I have a very good 15 Yamaha 4 stroke that I plan to put on the new hull. Can I get some opinions on doing that? Wondering if I need to beef up the transom or any other issues that I don't see yet? Thanks.

I had 15hp 2 stroke on 13ft gheenoe for years. Transom was fine. Problem you might have is how much the 4 stroke weighs.
Yep, and I'm not a little guy, either. Books says the 15 weighs 99 pounds. I'm thinking of putting a cooler seat towards the middle and a tiller extension to get more weight forward.
