Thanks for the heads up on that, I've always wondered if prop shops would let you try before you buy.

I guess i need to get my rig in the water and see what she can do.

1648 grizzly split seats in the back and completely open hull. 1990 evinrude 40hp tiller on the rear end. Going to throw a 6 gallon tank in her and listen to her purr.

Anyone got any guesses for speed? Not sure the prop its nothing special just an aluminum prop that the last owner said was the stock pitch.

I wish It would purr like my twin 350hp yamahas on my offshore rig. Those things are perfection!

I know for sure it's not me. This morning I got the diagnosis on my motor rebuild. Looks like it's not worth rebuilding....so,

Without some BIONIC PADDLING.......I'm only hitting 2.5mph with my troller. #-o
Peace,

Right now a basstender 10.6 with a minn kota maxxum 55 tops out at 4mph :lol: The boat is heavy 230 pounds dry (then add in me, the battery and tackle). I hope to be upgrading to a 1997 sea nymph FM 146 with an evinrude 30hp 2 stroker soon!

1648 with 60 Johnson tiller runs 39 with a total weight of 1100 (boat, motor, battery, gas, two people). I am only turning 5300 with a 19 pitch prop. Swapping on a set of 70hp carbs next weekend and looking for a 17 pitch prop.

dayme, that there sucks !!

Just curious, what is the speculation that caused the failure?
Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Probably bad gas clogging the injectors and causing a detonation problem.

Its a 1992 Lowe riveted boat. I would like a newer welded boat, but this one doesn't leak and I don't feel bad cutting and welding on it.

as to the legality issue- I am a second year law student taking an insurance course. So I am not an expert but I have had enough to give some general advice. You would have to look at the particular policy to see if there is a condition in it requiring hp to comply with the man. plate. Just becuase you are running extra hp does not mean that you are automatically sol under a liability policy. It also depends whether or not you had a discussion with your agent about the issue. To be 100% safe you definately would want to disclose to the insurer that you are exceeding the capacity plate rating because you know there is incentive for the insurer to say after the fact that you misrepresented information.
If a tort claim was brought against you, by overpowering your boat, you would likely lose automatically- unless you could show that the extra HP was not a factor in the accident. That's why you would like to have an insurance company to deal with your defense and losses if you are hauling a## from cove to cove.
