I have actually a 2019 60hp four-stroke mercury on my 17 foot Lowe Skorpion (aluminum). Peak speed is 33-34.5 mph. It has actually a spitfire prop. Is this in the appropriate range? Ive seen some subject where people have 18 foot boats that walk 37mph+ v a 60hp motor. Simply want come make certain I"m getting all the strength I can. Thanks!

Your speed is around right 33-34 MPH. A 18 foot watercraft with a 60 hp 4 stroke would certainly not struggle 37 uneven it was yes, really windy

Your around right, I"m sure you could get a couple of more ~ above top however you"ll loose down low and can"t bring extra fuel or tackle. Speed is always over stated.

I think you are obtaining pretty lot the right speed. I have actually a 60hp mercury 4 punch on a 16 ft fiberglass rod steering boat and with two people and an ice cream chest and also tackle I"m to run 35-36.

Also would be curious hiw they are measuring the speed. Mine 2020 175txw tracker through 75hp gauge reflects 42mph yet GPS mirrors 38 or 39mph peak on glass water
My 18" 3"/88" beam Fisher pro Hawk 180 v a 75 Merc is 38.7 with me, full tank, and also fishing equipment on an extremely light chop. 34.5mph with 3, complete gas, and also gear ~ above glass....all bone stock and via GPS earlier in the spring before me completely renovating it. (Added a pretty hefty deck extension, paint, carpet, rewire, etc etc etc)
I had actually a 2004 G3 1756, with a deck extension, included a pole locker, had actually 4 batteries, a 2004 Yamaha 50 HP 4 hit carbed. 32mph by general practitioners (on phone call apps).I then traded that engine for a 1985 Yamaha 2 punch 25 HP, 22mph (on graphs and also phone apps). Checked out a 25hp to fish hp limited lakes. A side keep in mind - holeshot was around the same.

Mine jumps from nearly accurate in ~ 38ish come 43-44 top top the speedo when I give it the last bit of trim for height speed. It"ll carry out 40 on a great day and also mine is most likely a an excellent bit more heavier up front than most watercrafts like mine v the Ultrex on the front. How amazing it runs the very same speed v my dad in the boat with me and he"s end 200. Powertech nrs3 has it propped perfect.

My Fisher 1600 through a 40 hp Merc 2-stroke tops the end at a blazing 27 mph through a full fishing load and a partner. By myself, I acquire a far better hole shot and also 29 mph. The watercraft max hp is a 50 yet I’d choose to placed a 60 when the time comes just to have actually a little more power and far better hole shot. It’s a good fishing watercraft for quick runs and skinny water.
