  1. I would think you would want to prop the boat so at WOT your RPMs would be the manufacturers recommended 4400-4800. The best way to stay on plane at lower speeds would be Trim Tab's or adding a fin to the outdrive . I added a SE 300 sport hydrofoil to mine , helped with hole shot and staying on plane at lower rpm's .
  2. Been in this boat, it's a great set up . Wish I had some spare bucks. Good Luck Cory !

  6. Heavy Duty Outboard Engine Stand with wheels . Will accommodate extra long shaft motors . Had my 75hp Merc on it , easy to move around. $50.00
  7. here are a couple pic of my fuel line with the collapsed lining.
  8. Merc had problems with their older gray fuel lines where the inside of the fuel line separates and starts to brake apart clogging the fuel flow . If you cut the line near one of the fittings or bulb you will see the separation , if that is your problem. (if not just reconnect the line ) My Merc has a fuel filer under the cover , you might see little pieces of the line in the filter . I have a 2002 15hp that had the bad line . Good Luck

  15. It's crazy what batteries cost now but , I would never have just one . I have two connect to a switch one runs my main engine and all the accessories the other runs the kicker . If someone (me) leaves the lights on and the battery goes dead i just flip the switch and run on the kicker batt . Summer is to short to miss a day of fishing for a dead batt . Good Luck !!
  16. found this : Best Answer - Chosen by VotersThe 165 is a GM 250 CID inline 6 block. These haven't been produced since about 1980. The modern equivalent is the GM 4.3L V 6, used by Merc, Volvo, and OMC, the basic 2 bbl carbed model producing 175-185 hp. Too bad they changed, in my opinion the old inline 250 was the best small marine inboard engine ever made.
