I have a Sea Nymph and rate it a very sea-worthy boat, not a fast boat due to the displacement hull design, about 7/8 knots will be your maximum speed, and a 20 hp is more than enough to achieve this. I have a Mercury 25 hp and only ever run at 1/3 throttle, due to the engine well design once you have arrived at 7/8 knots the more power you deliver to the boat only results in the stern getting lower in the water, due to the engine being a couple of feet forward of a traditional transom and the fact that it is not a planing hull, that said, I don't believe you could be in a safer boat for its size, I hope this helps and will be happy to answer any other questions, regards Steve.

Whoever told you that was probably not aware of the type of Sea Nymph you have, which were made by T.S. Marine of Southampton in the early to mid 80's, however there is also another type primarily made and imported from USA which are made from aluminimum and are flat bottomed ( like a punt ). Mainly used for still water lure or fly fishing they are notoriously unstable at anchor. You have the right one my friend, regards Steve.

i have the same type boat and use it all year round either in milford haven waterway or out to sea marks off st anns head very happy and a good sea keeping boat powered by a suzuki 28 mostly at 1/2 or 1/3 power gives me about 8/9 knots i've move the fuel tank in to the center of boat in to one of the seat boxes (vented) and also same with batterys to give more deck room and a less stern down ride sits very nice now evan with a good swell running

have fun
