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.

      Sorry, been offline for a while. Yes you can STILL drive out there if you're brave. I've seen people do it last night and they are probably still driving out there today. I'm going to go check in a bit, fishing has been pretty stellar as of late.

      2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast. On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase. Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows. Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
