Hey guys do you think a 150hp is too small for this boat ?
LOL just my thought
If you love it set it free, if it comes back fillet it.
Doesn't say the weight of hull but It would be just ok IMO
you would have to take it out on a windy day and see if it struggles pushing it.
Ant does have a good point by the way
I only drink on days that end Y
did you know the word Vegetarian is an old indian meaning for PISS POOR HUNTER.
anything over 2.5 needs to comply with the overwidth bullshit that follows. They have just ammended the rules Feb this year so you can now tow at night if under 2.7 however still a lot you must comply with to meet permit requirments. Fine $400.00 per item not complyed with. On big piss off is no travel on public holidays on some roads.
Shut up and fish or cut bait and tie riggs
My old 21ft haines signature used to push along ok with a 135hp 2 smoke. If you take it for a sea trial take a couple of blokes with you to see how it handles loaded.
Linds my hull is around the 1020kg mark without the engine, now a mate of mine had the same hull with a 150 on the back (keep in mind his Johnson fict was older than my e-tec). He would use about a third more fuel than me for the day and we normally shadow each other to scan for ground, I think the weight of the hull is the issue here. The problem with the 150 is it would be okay if you had 2 people on board but chuck another body or two a esky full of piss then watch the fuel guage go down. Prop selection is a key to when addind more people to the mix.
Fuck Frank you weigh the same as your hull...lol
i have a 22 foot fibreglass with 150hp 2 stroke and it goes really well. The one your looking at probably would be heavier conisdering it would have 400L of fuel and a lot more fibreglass with the 2.6m beam.
Bhudda loves chu
mine is a 6.1 plate ali and i have 150 etec , thats a great rig bigger & heavier i wouldnt put anything less than 200 hp JMO
i had a 140 suzi on my boat originally 6.0mtr polycraft with a dry weight of 1040kgs with a 200ltr fuel tank. i reckon it was under powered and upgraded to a 175 suzi and it has become a totally different boat.
my mate has the same boat that you are looking at and he has a 175etec on it and that pushes it along nicely. imo just a little bit under powered in shitty seas, flat water no probs.
u seen the 620 SeaFarer Vagabond in Safety Bay with the suzi on boatsonline dwarf?? Worth a look, albeit big hours on a 09 donk...serious shelf boat with good kit and catches fish from what iv'e heard...bet it don't come with marks tho
Yeah jasons boat looks good, with newish trailor. linds l would be surprised if that boat could do more than 30knots.once you load up with fuel and blokes and gear you will be disappointed.
That is Vagabonds boat Linds..
search urself dwarf posted just yestersday
clean looking rig i would test drive it for shore
looks like you can easily put an extension on the seat post as well
It would be like a little old lady struggling to see over the steering wheel in a car. Ha Ha
harden the f$%k up
but i would imagine itd be underpowered for sure
my 23.5 footer has 260 hp and i would still like more for getting out of the hole, looking at different prop options at the moment to help with this.
Divers go deeper
Short and sweet, good call!
plenty of headroom in the cabin for ya.
