I'm going to make a somewhat contrarian suggestion. Given how you describe your expected fishing, you might consider a cheapo B60 instead of the B175H. I have a B60 on my small boat and a B175H on...

You need a single Diesel inboard like the cold-molded Carolina charter boats. Maybe a nice little 200hp Yanmar 4LHA-DTP. Probably cost you less than a four stroke outboard nowadays and then you...

Hope you have a good dentist and orthopedic surgeon if you plan to cruise over 40 kts on that hull on anything other than absolute flat-ass calm seas. Seems like a waste of money to repower with...
