  19. I also have a 23' trophy hardtop (2359) and am on my second 9.9 yama HT motor. the only reason i am on my second one is that i had the first one for 12 years and just thought i should get a new one. the guy isold the old one to used it chartering, get a 4 stroke, just for the quietness, use a portable tank if you have to. p.s. and reliabilty. john
