SR5.4 Navy spec, 1994 85hp Yam origin premix 2 stroke, 19" pitch Michigan Wheel Match, 50-75l of fuel aboard, one fatb*****d 38 knots flat calm,but usual top speed is 33-35kts if there's any waves at all.


I'd recommend you selling the 70, putting a Yam 90 and a 19" ally prop on.

Tried going down the SS route with a Michigan Wheel, it's just not worth it on a Searider for the price and how often you get into shallow water. I like my gearbox too much.

Thanks mate, I know your right after driving your 85 not that i gave it full beans but the difference was significant! - always on the look out for the elusive yammy 3pot 90

Ribtec 655 with verado 200, getting about 43kts trimmed up..Has a house brick console and screen that slows me down.

It used to have an opti 175 and no screen and we maxed that at 50kts on a flat calm day.
