  • I think that member bought a H18.
    I wonder at the spec in the ad that says the 3hp motor moves the boat at 15-20 mph.
  • gahambythe ad that says the 3hp motor moves the boat at 15-20 mph.

    My tohatsu 3.5 can push my square bow jonboat 10 -11 mph with a tail wind

    Maybe he can downwind it at that speed or sail-motor in light air at that speed ?

  • I have a Suzuki 2.5 on the back of my 21SC. It's "sweet-spot" is right around 4.5-5 mph which at less than quarter throttle. You get 7 mph at half throttle and on a really flat day with no mast and rudders up you can top off at 12 mph at full throttle.

    I suspect the 15-20 mph listed in the advert is a little bit of an embellishment. Maybe with a 9.9 to 15hp?

    Thanks, Pete - as Gahamby noted I (at least) have moved to an H18, but there were others looking as well. Hopefully they'll see this thread...

    I appreciate the help!

  • On a dead flat calm my Torqueedo 1003 will push my SC15 t0 about 7mph. That rate will flatten the battery in about 30 min.
