WTBF,

Would you know if this would be too much motor for a 1981 Lund Mr. Pike - 16ft? The boat has a rating of 75hp but that was back in 1981. Does anyone out there know?

Good question, but I'm not sure. I know my dad put a 100 hp on a 76 starcraft that was rated for an 85 and didn't have any trouble. Ask a dealer.

Flash, I wouldn't do it.

Too much power, weight should be slightly more, and main issue is liability.

A 1981 75hp (at flywheel) is a 60hp at prop, a 2000 90hp is 90hp at prop. If you have any accident, even if you are not at fault no insurance will ever pay any claim since you modified boat going with a higher HP than max USCG rating.

WTBF - I am in the market for a 1750 Fishhawk. Is 90 HP not enough for the boat? Why are you upsizing? Thanks grin.gif

Lazer, The motor is fine for the boat. I'm looking to get a little more speed. Guess I still have a little kid in me.

What speed do you get with this motor on the fishhawk? I also have a 1750 fishhawk but I only have a 75hp.

FB- I have a 1750 Sportfish w/ the 90 Johnson pretty similar to the Fishhawk. Alone in my boat, I get up to 42-43 top end. 8-Ball.

8-ball is that speed on GPS? I may be wrong but the Fishhawk is a litter boat which would be faster.

Fishnbear my boat is a 1750 Sportfish and The best I've gotten is 39mph empty with standard Aluminum prop.

Nope- Standard factory prop, with just me in the boat. I raise up the lower unit to just above 3/4 (down) to get the max out of it. Not on a regular basis, just when I'm in the mood. Not that often... just kinda fun once in a great while. 8-Ball.

One more thing.. Was told at the dealer that if I upgraded to 115 that it would only incease my top-end 2 or 3 mph. I did not feel it was worth the extra $$ for just that little increase, personally. What were you looking at upgrading to? Your boat is probably rated 90-150, correct? 8-Ball.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
