comparing ob18 to od18

Post by anonymous » Tue Aug 03, 2004 2:09 pm

I am looking to build a 18 foot boat. That will use 25 to 40 hp. run shallow and will need to get through some rough stuff at times. How well does the OD18 handle 2 to 3 foot waves.

weel think i am leaning towards the ob18 . i have a spare 25 hp . am thinking that the OD 18 may weigh to much for a 25hp.

In my opinion, a 25hp motor on the OD18 will not be quite enough. I had a 30hp on mine for a bit, and it did okay if it was just me in the boat, but not if I had more people in it.
