Lund 1625 classic ss

4 posts in this topic

I have a 1625 with a 40hp merc 4 stroke and a 12 pitch prop. The boat tops out at 28-29 mph at 6000rpm with 2 adults gas, gear and a full livewell. Do I have the right prop? Anyone else have this boat and motor?

Just to compare, I have a 1660 Classic with a 50-4 stroke. With two in the boat max speed at 5800 rpm's is 33.5. Bigger motor and a little bigger boat. I had a 12 pitch prop but they changed it to another.

I'd say you are pushing your max RPM's right to the limit.

If your happy with the hole shot fully loaded it sounds about right but be carefull with the those RPM's you wouldn't want to go any higher IMO.

On the 50 4-stroke I have, the max rpm's that Mercury wants it to run is 6000. They prefer 5,850.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
