Newbie Yam 360S with 20hp and DIY console from the Netherlands

Hye There,

I am Berto, 46 years young, and living in the Netherlands.

Just before the summer we have bought our first SIB.
A Yam 360S with 5hp Mariner.


But after a few cruises we wanted more comfort (and I a little more speed).

So I built in some seats a console and a Johnson 20hp on the back:

Hello and welcome to the forum.

That must feel a totally different boat with four times the power and seating/console.

Thanks.


Yes it is, we haven`t been out much after the complete modification but it is a big improvement in comfort, and speed.

Now we can boat all day without not knowing how to sit in the boat, even cruising is so much more relaxing.

Looks good

With all the weight in the stern have you got extra weight in the bow?

Thanks.

No, but the console, steering column + throttle weight somewhat and that`s just in front of the center of the SIB.
+ the 25ltr fuel tank is in the console (when during the winter the 20hp is converted to electric start there also will a battery in front of the fuel tank).

I was (or am) thinking of making a box in the bow for the anchor and battery but for now that is just in my head.
Also because with the current set up I not really need more weight in the bow.


The speed at the moment is limited to 20km/hr due to the regulations (I do not have a certificate at the moment for faster boating ).

Alone I can not get it easily in plane from the seat with this limited speed, it only rise the bow, when I come in front of the console it will drop the bow and gets in plane, then I can sit on the seat.


If I am with my son he sits at the seat from the console and then it will planing easily, and when it is planing he can sit next to me.


Off course I tried without the limited power of the engine, then I just can sit in the back seat and the power of the motor will push it in planing mode.

So when I have my certificate the power will be unrestricted and will get about 40km/hr I guess.
