    Re: ****Xpress Set-ups**** (FloorSander)

    I have the H-20 Bass boat with a 200 on it. I can tell you that a 115 will probably not reach a real 50 mph, much less cruise at that speed. If you could reach 50 mph you would be burning a lot more fuel than if you were running a 150.

    I live on a very busy river and see these boats all of the time. You should ask your dealer to give you a demo ride or to get one of his customers to let you ride. A 115 is a great motor on a smaller boat, but I think you will be really disappointed if you put that on a 20' boat. Will the 115 push your boat? Sure it will, but when you invest as much as these boats cost...better get the right motor or you'll never be satisfied.

    While talking about "how fast" I was running my boat yesterday and was noticing that my speedometer was showing about five to six mph faster than the gps. I watched the speedometer as I increased speed and at a real gps speed of 63, it was showing 70 mph.

    Re: ****Xpress Set-ups**** (buddy_fuentes)

    I could not agree with Buddy anymore. My dealer talked me into a 2 stroke 90 Merc on my brand new HD 20 in 2007 which is a slower hull design than your H. I guess he had a surplus of these and wanted to move them. I was standing there with bucket full of hundreds telling him price does not matter what motor should I buy? His response was the extra several thousand dollars was not worth it. Boy was he wrong. I have been dreading that decision everyday since. I tweaked that 90 to the max and was able to get 42 gps max and had to smack its arse to get it. I have a rebuilt 2001 Merc 150 xr6 coming this Friday. I can't wait. If you are buying new get it right the first time. You are screwed when you try to upgrade motors after initial purchase. Some say go as big as you can afford I say go bigger than that!!!!!

    Re: ****Xpress Set-ups**** (lonnie)

    Ran my dealer's new 2012 X-21 with an Etec 250. Twenty-six inch Raker. Bumped the rev limiter after climbing through 76mph GPS on the console in-dash HDS-7. Needs a bit more prop to bring down the rpms. No idea how fast this thing will run when proped out properly. Jack plate is all the way up and it still comes out of the hole like a rocket. He has a 2011 demo with a Yammy 225 HPDI that runs 70mph for about $6K less. Tough choice.

    I think I should be a bit faster than that

    02 X-54

    New motor 2001 115hp Yamaha

    22 pitch PowertechTR04
    57mph
    5800 rpm 3.5" below pad
    15 psi
    Light load

    23pitch Mercury 4 blade Trophy Plus.
    54mph 5800 rpm
    3.75" below pad
    12psi water
    Normal load with 2 people.

    briefly saw 58 mph at 6000 mph light load
    5 psi water, layed it back down quickly, but it was running right. This setup needs a low water pick to full potential with the trophy plus, rooster tail level with motor, minimal chine.

    02 90 hp Yamaha
    4" below pad
    7" jackplate
    17p Powertech PTR
    47 mph @ 6000 rpm's
    My self, some gear and 3/4 tank of fuel.
    This set up the boat needed more bow lift, and could take alot of trim.


    3.5" below pad
    19 Stilletto Advantage I, with factory pvs.
    46 mph @ 5700 rpm's
    Myself(170lbs), and passenger(200lbs), some gear and 1/2 tank of fuel.
    This setup is about right, runs high on the water like figerglass boat.

    Hi all. New to forum. Was wondering what prop to use to get the best performance from a 2013 H18PFC with a Yamaha 150 4 stroke and a 6" jack plate.

    Thanks for any info.
