It does 17knots flatout acording to gps full throttle but cruises at 13knots on the plane at half throttle I wheel the boat down the beach first then carry the motor down on my shoulder it's a heavy lump it wieghs 55 kg if I remember correctly when I bought it in nov 08 it was between the Suzuki or a mariner which was lighter by about 7kg the Suzuki is a lovely motor but I would have maybe thought twice with experience.
thanks for your reply...
luckily i dnt have to carry the motor for a long distance
now im trying to sort out a trailer, cause i willl get bored inflating and deflating every week....maybe a box trailer would do...
did u add an extra bench next to the motor? i noticed well ?
