Hi all been waiting to post photos of my Carolina skiff j12 build I started with a bare hull added a mercury 15 4 stroke and a grab bar from there I installed lights a push pole and a bilge pump I took it out for the first couple runs down by goodland Florida and could hit 28 mph with two people (160lbs each) and some gear I took it out a week later and it would not go faster than 8mph motor was inspected by a shop they said everything's good so it's leading me to believe that my fuel line connection is bad anyone had a problem like this? The motor is brand new
Hey I know this post is old but I have the same boat and I installed a grab rail too. The problem is that the deck is very thin. When I drilled into it it went right through after like half an inch. How did you install that grab rail??? I'm scared by grab rail so not not secure enough.
