I just commissioned a new skiff - 17 Maverick and I am finalizing a motor decision which I have a few weeks to do. My old skiff ran great with a 70 Yami 2S but topped out around 35 and ran all day in the upper 20's. It was a great power to get where I wanted to go, shallow and sipped gas. I expect more of the same from the new 70 and likely a bit faster given what I am hearing on the boat motor combo. For the extra weight of the 90 I get a blazing fast boat that I can then use the range to fish other areas of Flamingo and Biscayne Bay to the lower keys that I couldn't before - just took too long to get there. I have a few guide friends with as much as a 115 on the boat and they seem to fish just about everywhere I have in my old boat. The reason I would go with a Suzuki 90 is that it is the fastest and lightest and best reviewed motor at that rating. Looking for other folks thoughts and real experience. Thanks.
