What Can You Clear???

4 posts in this topic

If you are wide open, trimmed out as best you can, what is the MINIMUM depth you can buzz before the skeg will catch?

I can stay on plane and trim up quite a bit before I get too much cavitation and foul out.

Assuming I would not have to turn (can't do it trimmed up so far) if I was on full plane and trimmed to the max that I could before losing power (or water to my cooling system) I would clear...

16"....I think.

This is a 17' Lund with 70 hp tiller.

What can you (or do you think you can) clear before knocking up?

Sorry guys, my computer crashed and I had to start clean. Not a newbie, but here none-the-less.......

Yeah, leave it to Riverpro to attempt to set the depth standard on an apples to oranges standard. Do clarify........prop vs. jet. Glad to hear you can do it RP. Love that stretch of river and wish I could do it in my other boat but the canoe will have to do. You danged fancy show off!!!!!! grin.gif

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
