        Except for the storage/trailering problems of a 30 footer, this seems an ideal picnic/day cruiser for several, with nice occasional camp cruising for 2 on rivers and many lakes. And one could leave off the cabin, go to a planked deck finished bright and have a bargain gentleman's speed boat, again for protected waters

        IMO, without knowing more about the prop and engine rpm it is difficult to know how many of the 20hp are being used. The cabin is a major aerodynamic drag, so head/tail winds will have a big impact.

        I recall the prototype having a 25hp 2 stroke Mercury on it. Those old Merc's were noted for their performance.

          Maximo:

           

          Congratulations on the launch.  Very nice detail on the interior.

           

          I run Esther Mae (Tennessee) with a four stroke 25hp and being close to the plans (double 3/8” bottom with 3/8” hull and cabin top).  When first purchased the engine had been sitting for about two years.  The engine started on the day of the test drive without much hassle and produced boat speeds of 12 – 14 mph with economy of 10 mpg running wide open throttle.  Now at over 800 hours and in excess of 4,500 miles I regularly run at 16 mph but have not checked the economy lately.  I suspect that the biggest factor in the speed is ethanol in the gasoline.  I regularly run a gas preservative that is intended to eliminate buildup in the system.  It is possible that over time it is still removing gunk from the carburetor.  I talked with a service technician at the local Yamaha dealer and he said that with the pre 2001 models the jets in the carburetors are large enough to deal with the ethanol and that there is little that can be done to eliminate the effect of the stuff.  Apparently newer models are more sensitive to the ethanol and suffer reduced performance if left sitting for very long.

                  I remember now, on the Diablo (160 kgs, 1/5 of Idaho's weight) with the same
                  motor, I made a maximum speed of 18 knots. So 13.5 maximum speed on Idaho
                  seems OK.

                  My background is sailing on sailboats, so any speed from 4 knots is great!
                  :)

                  Also sailing protected from the wind and spray, with a panoramic view, 10
                  knots on interior water, with almost no wave nor noise... is excelent.

It cost $3000 has needed about $500/year repairs and more than that in insurance each years I have owned it. I hardly drive it, but it is handy to have the pickup for other things besides towing the boat. It cost less per year than storage fees at a marina. I drive junk vehicles and use a back yard mechanic for most repairs. Renting from U-haul would be practical and cheaper if only towing the boat a few times a year. It is a solution that would work for me and might be cheaper than owning. I may go that route in the future.

                        You don t need that much of a vehicle to tow Idaho in any case. Maximo s numbers make it out as being a bit lighter than my 19 bay boat. That boat weighs

                          You don't need that much of a vehicle to tow Idaho in any case. Maximo's numbers make it out as being a bit lighter than my 19' bay boat. That boat weighs 2900 lbs on its trailer, and I tow it with a 6-cyl minivan (and have crossed the USA from Seattle to Florida with it twice). Most mid-sized SUVs, 6-cyl crossovers, and the Nissan and Toyota 4-cyl pickups will tow that weight just fine. And contrary to what you might think, the long trailer will increase stability compared to a shorter trailer of the same weight, too.

It cost $3000 has needed about $500/year repairs and more than that in insurance each years I have owned it. I hardly drive it, but it is handy to have the pickup for other things besides towing the boat. It cost less per year than storage fees at a marina. I drive junk vehicles and use a back yard mechanic for most repairs. Renting from U-haul would be practical and cheaper if only towing the boat a few times a year. It is a solution that would work for me and might be cheaper than owning. I may go that route in the future.

                            I'll second that. I tow my bantam, which weighed out trailer and all at 2740 lbs, with a Kia sedona van with the 6 cyl. I've towed it from MN to FL and back, and MN to TX and back, plus lots of shorter trips of under 250 miles.

                                Hello John: I don't have a tachometer for RPM reading. The documentation on
                                internet of my motor, the standard propeller is diameter 9 1/4 x pitch 10,
                                but I will check it next time I go to the club. Thanks, regards, Máximo.

                                What are your rpms at WOT and half throttle?

                                You may not have quite the correct propeller pitch.
