Re: Diablo: total makeover
- I used a 9.9 longshaft 2 cycle Johnson.
It had me at 15 mph measured over a mile with 2 people on board (300
A test with the 9.9 Honda 4 cycle yielded a significantly lower speed
barely planing with the same load. The weight of the motor, and prop
match were the blame.
Beautiful boat, congratulations. I hope to do some more work on the
18' clamskiff in my garage, this will be the Diablo replacement.
