Yamaha 115 four stroke


DickUrban

Question

I am considering a Lund Fisherman 1700 with a Yamaha 115 four stroke. A friend tells me that maotor doesn't have enough out of the hole for skiers. Is that true?

My in-laws have the exact same setup and love it! No problems with pulling anyone and just the right size for 3-4 people to fish out of. Good luck with the purchase.

I've got the same setup. It jumps right up and does 45mph - you'd have to be a real speed demon to want more.

I've got a 115 suzuki on a 1700 Angler, very close to the set-up your talking about... I don't honestly see a difference in hole shot between the 4 and 2 strokes I've owned. It has very good hole shot, as do most of the newer 4 strokes I believe. Top speed on this set-up is 48 mph gps.

Have a Yamaha 115 4 stroke on my 1700 explorer. 4 people in boat and dog, pops tubers up in no time. Has a 13 1/4 x 17 prop. Boat gets up on plane in no time. Haven't tried skiers yet cause kids like to tube.

Me too. We've pulled skiiers and tubers without a problem. Having the right prop and using a hydrofoil makes a ton of difference (as it does with any motor).

i should add that i have played around with differant props on mine to get better performance when pullin skiiers,,obviosly u should look at a stainless steel prop, im guessing theyll put an aluminum 19" pitch on it to start

i found a guy that sells new and used props here in the twin cities and i got a great price on this used stainless 18",, and the boat rocks with that on out of the hole, and my top end is still 47 mph at 6000 rpm.

Dick Urban and cd3,
I have a Crestliner 1850 Pro Sport with a Yamaha 115 4 stroke. Love the motor but all the talk about props spurs a question that been asked before. The dealer put a 131/4" X 17" Hustler prop on it to start. At best I can run about 40 mph at 6000 rpm. How much difference does it make going to a stainless prop? Do you think going to a 19" would drop the rpm's to low and would I sacrifice the hole shot with a 19"? Dick, just wanted to say hi and let you know I am also from central Iowa.

CD I sure appreciate the offer. Thanks very much but I live in central Iowa. I ordered the 1700 with Yamaha 115 today.

I am passing on info that I have got from others here. A stainless steel prop will normally give you about 3mph more on the top end. This is due to the fact that it doesn't flex and loose some of it's pitch like aluminum. Depending on what your motors rpm range is you may be able to run a little more prop on your rig, you loose about 200 rpm with every 1" pitch of prop. But you still want to stay on the recommended rpm range of the motor.

starman, I have the same rig as you. My Yamaha came with a standard aluminum prop that is 13x19. It runs 42mph @ 6000 rpm with one or two peoople in it.

Thanks U.N. and Dusty,
Looks as though I could go to a 19" with little problem and stay in the rpm range. How's the hole shot under a load? Guess if I was that worried about speed I should have opted for a few more ponies. Thanks again for the input. Starman

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
