mark 55

Hi again all. Been away too long. Now things are melting again im getting antsy for the lake. The 40 mariner was 180 lbs. and when i pick up the mk 55 its no prob for me to handle alone so Im guessing 120-30 lbs. I havent had a look lately but i seem to remember a tag with 45 hp on it somewhere.
