    Default I have a Honda 90, what to put it on?

    I have a 20" Honda 90 outboard. I have a prop, and a jet pump, remote controls, and a tiller for it. What should/could I put it on?

    I am leaning towards an 1860 SeaArk jet tunnel skiff (can be had new for $7,700 with a new trailer).

    In addition to this Honda 90, I have another Honda 90 on my Harborcraft 22' center console landing craft.

    What else could or should I put it on. 18' Hewescraft with ext transom and hard top, 17' Bullfrog super sport utility center console, something used etc...?

    Is anyone else running a 90hp? What is your setup?

    I run a 90 merc on my 17.5' wooldridge AK. I wish it was a 115 but it gets me and three friends to the fishing hole no problem. If you wanted to "store" your Honda on the back of my boat for a season or two I would be happy to oblige!

    I have an 18 foot long, extra wide Gator Jet with a new transom that would be a perfect fit. On trailer with center console and brand new floor. $4,000.

    Build a Tolman widebody

    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    I will fit perfectly on C-Dory 22 cruiser. I have a 75 and it get the job done but would prefer a 90.

    Now that is a cool boat. Both Paul's and that boat would be a great recreational boat out of any marina here in south central.

    Potbuilder Steve,

    Nice boat from Maine but what is it called? What does it cost?

    I belive the sign says Crowley-Beal 23, I found the website for the dealer (sign over the boat) and he has some info on his site. It does not appear the maker of the boat has a website as it sounds like a couple of guys who do the work and then turn them over to be outfitted. Looks cool. I have always liked the New England boat, nice lines...

    I just spotted this thread and my first thought was you should put that 90 on a 20 foot Tolman Widebody....but I see others have beat me to it.

    Okay okay ok... we are getting off track. Realistically these great little lobster boats require 115hp, and are on the high side of my willingness to pay. If I was going to shuck out over $35k for a hull and trailer and ship it across country, I wouldn't be so cheap and put my Honda 90 on it.

    So lets add a new parameter to the original question.... price.... less than $20k for hull and trailer... prefer no more than $10k but willing to look and listen.

    You can build and trailer 20' Tolman Widebody for less than $20K. It's the perfect boat for Alaskan waters, and the Honda 90 is the perfect powerplant for it.
