Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

All true Tom but .......... 24V trolling motor therefore 2 x 12V batteries to run it. These are the easiest batteries to move cause it would only involve rerouting and shortening the cables. I cant imagine moving only one. Ideally they should be close to the TM anyway. Moving the house battery would...

Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

Could you just put the boat in some water, disconnect the trolling bats, move them forward a bit, then see how she sits? Might be easier than the math.;) Yup! You don't have to be Einstein to see that that boat is seriously tail heavy. The trolling motor batteries (2 x ) are a no-brainer relatively...

Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

Wow, great looking boat! However, it is clearly very tail heavy.

I think its a no brainer - move your trolling motor batteries to the front, then see how it sits.

I can't do the maths, but ideally the trolling motor batteries should be close to the motor anyway.

Re: Anyone Fishing?

Thought you might like to meet one of the locals!



This guy is about 15 ft long - well above the size for potential "man-eater" status! :D

Re: Anyone Fishing?

Where I fish!

Here's a quick early morning run up the beautiful Hinchinbrook Channel in north Qld, from the boat ramp at Lucinda to the mouth of the marina at Port Hichinbrook, Cardwell.

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

OK, that’s looking better.

I make 145L of fuel as 145 x 0.72 x 2.2 = 230 lb

I assume you got your o/b weight from the specs. My 250 hp Yamaha is only 20 kg heavier than your 150 Suzi.

150 kg of fishing gear? Seems like a lot to cart around! :D

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

Barraman your boat weight 4180lbs don't know how much water gas and all you carry or what your normal passenger load is. But Wouter gave me his numbers for his boat and load of everything on it so I went with what he gave me. He is adding a lot of features to the base PH18 Tom Tom, the 4180 lb weig...
