Bit late for my reply sorry but I've been away. I bought a Bombard 4.85 in April/May with a DF50 Suzuki.

I like the boat. its a good family boat, however she doesn't like choppy waters much (quite a shallow hull) and she slaps back into the water after take off- So people on deck in the front get an uncomfortable ride.. Part of the problem with mine is I think the seating/console arragnement which puts all the weight into the back. Would be better with a jockey arrangement situated more to the front.

So people on deck in the front get an uncomfortable ride.

I'd be keen to know how you get on

Thanks for your imput. It helps since you have one yourself.
Im looking into the Quicksilver 430 now with a 25hp s stroke.
Its a lot cheaper. I can get both for under 6000$ Canadian.
But good to know your experience with a bombard wb tho. I appreciate that.
