ya, im not sure what to expect, anything around the 25kt range would be nice, the faster the better, the one i have is a 2stroke so will have to see how she does. what speed do you get with your setup?

Hi Andrew

I think that it would be a mistake to use the 40 hp Mariner for this project because it does not have PTT. My experance with the DR 490 (similar sized boat) that the Ptt is essential.
