Very nice boat. I will be interested to hear what you think of it after you have had a chance to use it a bit. I have heard some people say that the 3L inboard just isn't enough power for a bigger boat and it doesn't have enough jam to pull a couple fat guys around on a tube if the boat has a few people in it. I have also heard others say that they have more than enough power.

I like how the cup holders have already been broken in too. Laughing

It wont be enough power to pull a 180lb guy on a single ski out of the water. We use a 18' with the 4.3 (about 180hp) and it takes 13 seconds to get him planing at full throttle. It is a long and painfull pull.

It all depends on the wieght of the boat and pitch of your prop, that 18' with the 4.3 may be haevy and a high pitched prop, like a 21 or something. The brther in law bought a brand new 2010 175 with a 3.0l out of Edmonton for $14,300 and it is bare bones but light and it pulls 4 adults on 2 tubes no prob, I think he's running A 17p prop and still gets 41 mph

that ridiculous... our old 18 foot inboard reinell boat pulled a 200 pound water skier out of the water no problem.. it barely had 100 horses.. it would also pull 2 full size adults on tubes no problem as well.. it would also pull two of us knee boarding with no issues..
how much horses does a guy really need?? like really?? get a different prop or something because something is obviously wrong there..

It also depends on the guy you are trying to pull out. We had a Baha with a 200hp merc and my brothers and I could hold it back if we wanted to. I pulled my brother up behind our 60hp lund tiller this summer.

And JP, you never have enough HP!

It is a late 90's early 2000's lund. Even after the new head gaskets and tune up this summer it still struggles. The slalom ski he has is a high performance bugger that really takes a lot to pull you out of the water. I wakeboarded behind a 50hp 22' pontune boat a few summers ago and it had no issues but this slalom ski is a bastard. I have tried different pitches and everything and the prop looks fine.

Have to agree here, maybe a newbie couldn't get up on it, but you can pull the average water skiing sob up with a dang 50 horse if you wanted too.

I haven't done it, but I hear it's easier to learn on low HP then getting yanked around by a ___hp jet boat.
