yamaha 155 4 stroke


Guest

Question

Looking at buying a 1800 lund fisherman with a yamaha 115 4 storke on it. I have heard from a couple of people that a 115 might not be enough motor. I would think it would push it around the lake, what do you guys think? And while we are on the topic of boats would you recomend the fisherman or should a guy look at the pro-v 1800 or tyee 1850. Have a older 16 ft Mr. Pike right now and would like something a little bigger with a windsheild. I am tired of getting wet.

Thanks Scott

I bought an 1800 Fisherman w/ a Suzuki 140 4S and am very happy with both. Dry ride, the motor whispers and hit around 45 GPS at 5000 rpm. I wouldn't go less than a 135/140 hp.

Not sure what the fisherman weighs but I have an Alumacaft TPro 175 with a tiller Yamaha 90 4-stroke and it goes about 40 at 6000 RPM. Would think th etwo boats would be fairly similar in performance.

Scott,

I beleive that the 1800 is rated for a 175 h.p. I would never chose a motor that would be less than 80% of the max h.p.
Using this formula a 115 would not be enough motor. Either step up in horses or step down in boat size, I'm sure that you will end up much happier with your purchase

AWW Heck, just slap a Mercury OptiMax 250XS on there, who needs them ratings anyways.

Just Kidding
I think a 150 horse OptiMax, FICHT or HPDI VMax would be awesome on that boat.

I have a 2003 Crestliner Sportfish 1850. It has a Yamaha 115hp 4 stroke on it with a mid range prop. It will run 40mph at about 5800 rpm. Weigh your options on the need for speed vs more boat options to get the price and comfort your looking for.

Go for the larger engine, I've been in a 1700 Fisherman with a 115 Yamaha and sure, it would plane out, and sure, I'll do around 40. However, with just two guys, albeit two guys that are 6'3" and 250 or so, it felt kind of doggy to me.

Get into the hot summer days with friends or family to do a little sking or whatever and I'd guess you'd wish you had more engine behind ya. I've heard a lot more people wish they had more HP than the other way around....

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
