i had a 1990 18 sport, not one 18 ft boat could come close to that hull. Great design, draft was shallow Handled great FAST AS HELL! i had a 89 135hp merc on mine never proped it out but it did 47knt that boat trimmed and pinned loved to eat, it would chine walk and ive gone over some very shallow sandbars where i puckered up and didnt touch.
if i ever come across one for the right price i will buy it on the spot no hesitation.
I had a 125 hp I had on my dolphin.Sold the dolphin and slapped it on this welcraft.Not too fast at 37mph wot about 30 to 33 mph cruising.Not fast but efficient.It came with a mariner 150,same as black max and went close 50 mph but it was just too old.Gonna have to due cause my passion is micro and I don't really want to buy a 150hp.My plans seem to be to sell this and my ipb and get me a really nice skiff later in the future.Till then ill enjoy it.
