Trophy 175 is 1550# dry and 185 is 1780# dry (best I remember, might be slightly off).
I think a 175 would suit my needs, but I guess my thought is why wouldn't I go bigger since this is something I want to keep for a long time.
It would be very normal to consider the bigger boat. I think Flatheadsteve and Jethro makes an extremely valid point about going with max rated HP. Maybe consider upgrading the 175 with the 150 HP motor. Total cost would probably be less than the 185 with the 150 HP motor and certainly less than the 185 with a 175 HP motor. Just a thought.
