Bad move, I suggest you buy a complete water pump kit and then replace the parts that are worn. Pay particular attention to the stainless wear plate, if it’s not smooth, replace it.

The dealer is giving you accurate advise. The F150 is a strong 150 hp while the F200 is on the weak side. Typically you will see 3 mph top end difference between the two.

I suggest you hunt for a 17’ Boston Whaler Montauk. Preferably with a 3 cyl. engine. It’s about the smallest boat you can buy that will handle offshore waters safely.
