Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

Update on weight and balance - moved my three group 31's up to what was the anchor and fender locker and it worked out perfect. See picture below from the long weekend up on Georgian Bay. I think the smallmouth bass like it better too! I can tell the difference in ride and no more porpoising when I ...

Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

Sorry for the delay Casey, just saw this, must have missed it in my trolling ... If you want to cruise she is fine. If you want to fly on calm mornings / blast off at bass tournaments no. Mine tops out just below 40 MPH trimmed and jacked with 13 pitch 4 blade stainless Evinrude prop. I could possib...

Re: PH18 in Midcoast Maine - Rusty Clouser

Good luck with your build. My PH18 took 4 years as well, but it was worth it. I can't say enough about the good builders on this forum, and everything I have learned from their generous sharing.

All I need now is more horsepower ....

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

I plan on moving 3 - 2 for 24V TM and the one for 12V accessories (dedicated starting battery is #4) Perhaps what I ...
