The biggest I have been in is a 1854.
I don't know how well a 20 HP longtail would push something that size.
A boat that big would be difficult to hide. Is it riveted or welded?

It's all welded I got some better pictures of it last night and I don't think it's 60 wide but I'm going to go take a look at it and see what is myself. But that was my main concern was pushing with my 20 horse

IMO it probably wouldn't be fast or easy to hide.. that's more of a surface drive boat.

IF, I were to get that boat I would put at least a 35hp maybe even 45 hp surface drive on that boat. If you did that it would be one sweet boat.

I currently run an 18X60 with a 35 HP surface drive. I went to a bigger boat from a 16X48 as my boys got older and we needed more room. Now there are usually only 2 of us that go each week and I have more room than any 2 people would need.

Once you get the beast up on plane it's fine...but getting it there can be a problem...especially in really shallow or really deep water. I have found that hiding it is also an issue. We have tried several different blinds and materials...it's just BIG.

I would go back to a 16X48 with a 27 HP long tail in a minute.
