Speed Estimate

What sort of top end speed would you expect from a 4 m Avon searider with one person and a jocky console lightly loaded with a 40 hp Yam 2 stroke on the back.

Particularly interested to hear from someone who has this setup

Thanks

Dennis

Late 30's would be my guess...then again it depends if we're talking about the one person (loading) being like Matt h or Nos!

35 knots if correctly balanced and propped.( 10.5 x17 prop 3 blade.. 37 if 50hp at that point you need to hang on

I used to get around 38mph out of mine with a 40hp Mercury 2 stroke on it.

Yep about as it should be ... is about 33knots cm. 40 mph is achievable if correctly set up

Prop' it for top speed and you'll ruin what an SR4 is best at.
IMO, low 30s is where you wanna be for punchy pull out and snappy throttle response.

That's running 50hp, a bit less for 40hp.
