Any word on what the boat ran with the correct prop?
Tohatsu 60 on all carbon Mangrove 18 reportedly reaches 42 mph with 1 person; high 30s with 2 guys & gear. Not too dissimilar to the F70 on the heavier Snake Bight 18.
I assume that's a non-tunnel Mangrove?
Who has forked out the dough for an all carbon chittum, though?
I would be more interested in the numbers for a normal layup.
G8rfly how is that 50hp tohatsu holding up for you? I'm in the process of having my skiff built and I'm trying to decide on an outboard....thx
I have a 50% Carbon with a 50hp Tohatsu and run 35mph with clients and gear. My max has been 36.8mph with me and light gear. Both are WOT figures.
Love my Tohatsu 60! Had it since March and have about 60 hours on it. I have the foreman holeshot prop on my tunnel Conchfish and get 34 mph full load and no load. That's just where she stops. My skiff is definitely heavier than Stevie's and Chris's Chittums but thought I would offer my experience with the motor.
FWIW, a buddy of mine has a Fury tunnel with a Merc 60 and 4 blade mercury prop. I absolutely smoke him out of the hole and get better top end too.
Hey thx guys...I have been overwhelmed with trying to decide on an ob ...I think I'm going with the 50 hp Tohatsu
My top speed solo with a Tohatsu 50 hp full carbon Laguna Madre 2, heavily cupped prop & 5 gallons was just under 39.
That's awesome... What model is that simrad
Blv it’s an EVO9
Are you wanting a short shaft? If not, your choices go way up. I'm wanting a short shaft so my choice is pretty much Tohatsu and Honda. With Tohatsu way in the lead.
I like the Suzuki but I'm leaning toward the Tohatsu because of the short shaft... I just don't know to a lot about Tohatsu especially the maintenance...any input thx
Where are you located? The best Tohatsu service guy in Texas is Vantage Marine in Port O'Connor.
Know I'm in FL
I had a 50 Yamaha four stroke on my new to me release classic 15ft. The hull is kevlar, weighs in at under 400lbs. I just got a 2020 Tohatsu 60 in white to replace the old Yamaha. The Yamaha is about 60lbs heavier than the tohatsu. Getting the boat back from the shop the week after July 4th week. What do you think I would run speed wise?
Any recommendations on Dealers, preferably ones easy to deal with.
