20hp 1655 Report

Post by PartsMan » 09 May 2011, 12:22

I finally got my 1655 out on a calm day with the new 11 pitch prop Saturday!

Had a full load (maybe a little over) and 1/4 the rated power and she still planed out!

Then I dropped my 4 passengers off at the dock and it popped out of the water and cruised like a dream.

If only I hadn't left the GPS in the truck.

I have a Lowes L1440M and I'm trying to decide between a 4-stroke 20hp and 2-stroke 25hp. Was your 20hp a 2-stroke or 4-stroke?

It is a 2-stroke with a cheap Comprop 4 blade.

Enough power but with this prop 24 mph is about all that would be possible. (motor at full rpm and slip at a minimum)
Fast enough for me.
Mine is a wide, deep, heavy boat so yours may do better.
