Northlander

Question

Is this 115 yamaha 4 stroke enough motor for a new 2004 17' Lund Explorer? Do people like their 115 yamaha ?

More than enough as the console version of the 1700 explorer is only rated to 90, and the tiller at 75 according to my 2004 Lund catalog.

Wierd, page 52 in their catalog says max 90 in two places while refering to the SS model. I took a look at the specs in the back and it said 125 there? I guess a guy would have to look at the CG rating plate.

I have the 90 HP Yamaha on my 1675 Explorer, it now runs great though I am still playing with props it will run about 40 mph (GPS not speedometer) and has a good hole shot.

Depending on where you buy the boat you may have to have the motor height adjusted . One Large MN boat dealer mounts the motors on all of the boats they sell as low as physically possible . Maybe to sell more props ?

Fisky I saw the same thing but it is rated to a 130 I guess. Thats what it said on the boat. 2004 is a bit bigger and heavier than last years. 4 " gunnel and 36" deep at center. Real nice boat and real close to the angler.

I like how they look....very fishable boat. Waiting for the dealer near me to get some 1800's in stock, explorers and Mr Pikes to give the once over.

Fisky have you read on Walleye central about the 115 Yamaha "making oil"? What do you think about this?

Northlander,
I have read thru some of those threads over there. Sounds like it could be something as simple as oilchange procedure, or something having to do with break-in? It also sounds like some folks have no probs and nothing but good to say about them also. Myself, I know 3 people that run these engines, 2 since early last season and the other since the season before. I've fished out of all 3 of these boats and from my times in them I have to say they are way sweet. None of these guys have had any problems with their F115's, and have nothing but good to say of them. 1 guy did have a tachometer calibration problem when he first got it, but that was taken care of right away by the dealer. Not sure if it was the fancy multi function tach or something with the electrical system of the engine or what? No problem now though. If I were looking to power a boat with that size engine that would be one I'd seriously consider.

I have a 115 yamaha on a 2004 1700 SS explorer. It gets up and moves. Dealer wanted to sell me the boat with a 90 Yamaha, but with all the posts I have read. Not too many people wish they had a smaller motors on their boats. Boat runs around 45-46 with 2 people in boat. Also 115 is fuel inj. 90 has carbs.
Motor so far has been great. But time will tell like with most motors.

      Now many businessmen open their companies in the USA, as this makes it easy to apply for an American accelerator and communicate with any investor.

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?

      The three on top of the pile are geese. Smurfy. 😉   +1 on the decent shooting!  Thanks for the pics.  This was one post that got me to log back in to spam central.   Going dark again….
    • smurfy
