At one time I picked up a Ford 289 with Hipo heads and loaded it in the back of a Nissan Hardbody Lowrider by myself..If I tried that now I would probably blow out a testicle.

Put my original 1500gti in the boat.  Fits in the enclosure that the Xcon was stolen out of.  Since they took the 1000w amp I am now powering it off the 2nd half of a 4000.4 Polk.  Output is absurd.

Obviously not a low end machine, but for the time being it is free tunes.  Stupid Alpine headunit makes me connect via bluetooth every time I power it on.  I have it go completely dead though as my batteries shut off switch kills everything except the bilge pump.

Screams to be paired with some high efficiency stuff in a 5 way, lol.

If I had a bigger enclosure the low end would be way better....but I ain't got room for that.

I am all wired back up for an upgrade, but don't feel like buying atm.  Either later this summer or next.  Contemplating just putting one of my 12's in a new enclosure to buy myself some more leg room

I wish, but can't find the right compromise.  Want the best fishing boat for my family that fits in my garage.  If I can extend my garage 2" that would be this:

50266_2012_lund_Aluminum_2010_Pro_Guide.

or

4f2253748fa2986c7ef07f4b2f605800687cb34.

or

None are really fast.  All close to 60mph with a 200hp on them.  So not slow by any means, but I want the open space of a tiller.  Really a toss up between the lot depending on the deal.  I doubt the Yarcraft will fall my way, but the Ranger or Lund are rather likely.

If I have to get a 19' instead of a 20' (boo engine restrictions and 40mph MAX) then it will be the Warrior.  Will look for one that is grandfathered in with a larger motor.

Has to be older than 13 though otherwise max 90hp not 140hp.  The 140hp is a detuned 175hp as well which means it is easy to kick it up a notch.  Would RIP with a 175 on it.

Especially with the prop it comes with as the midrange would rip.

That last bass boat was a fucking monster.

Those are walleye boats with muskie platforms.  Multi species.  My old bass boat was a monster.  Nearly 80mph

The boats I am looking at all have HP restrictions because there is no steering wheel.  Something REALLY exciting about having a >4L v8 being completely controlled by your arm.

Restrictions of the coast guard are lifted at 20' which is why the first 4 all have 200hp+.  Last one is the 19' with a 140.

....I feel really dumb... what is the difference between boats in this context?

I would have assumed lake fishing boats are all the same for catching different fish.  How does the fish know????

I was never afraid for a second either.  Usually I get a sense of panic from bass boats lifting up.

That's what my girlfriend says when she gives me a handy.

 

If you go past 20 can you have a more powerful outboard or is it just the steering wheel?
