I think one would notice some differences. Because the Eldora is made with Carbon Integra is quite a bit lighter than that (I think around 275 lbs without the motor). I would put a 35 hp on one.i agree i 2nd the outlaw, it is a nice boat. Chris Morejohn said the eldora hull came out of the same whipray/waterman mold. So it runs, floats and poles just like a whipray. I saw the eldora at icast and it is bare bones. I have a no liner 16' side console waterman, i think the hull weight was claimed #375-395, so i would expect the performace on the pole to be the same.the Hull looks identical to my waterman. i have a 40hp and the eldora has he 25hp so its a little slower. Plenty fast enough for what it is intended to do. i wouldn't want to cross an open bay in it in a decent chop. i dont see um pumping them out, so that should tell you something.
30 for eldora. Quote today.Actually, I think the price is $29,900 with all standard spec's, Yamaha 25 HP, galvanized Ram-Lin trailer, etc.
The difference between the Whiprays and all the other hulls built using its hull shape is simple.Great insight Chris very interesting stuff. Chris can you elaborate on what the feeling difference is between the original whipray and the waterman you mentioned. thanks
