Maiden voyage of new kit

Got the Tohatsu T420SB last year and this year added the FS20. Yesterday was the first trip out- great fun but I think I need to do a bit of trim adjustment.

What sort of speed do people think should I be able to get out of this rig? I amnaged 19 knots from a similar package a couple of years ago.

Very nice

19 knots is pretty good speed for a 20hp

for trim you might be better sitting a bit further forward with a till er extension


good looking rig

Ah yes, but he doesn't say what speed he's getting from this one, does he?

What speed are you getting from this one, M-T?

I'm gonna guess 13 knots
(I like guessing games)

Speed of this rig

I managed about 15/16 knots with the setup pictured. I know what you're saying about the tiller extention and sitting forward but that speed was two up with the mrs sat forward. At the end of the day out I did adjust the trim by one hole and that made a difference.

The 19 kts was with the old Avon and the old 1972 Evinrude 18hp. I would have thought I could whoop that with this new kit?

My best is 22 knots lightly loaded with a similar sized boat and 20HP engine.
