Lowe 1860 Roughneck with 35/50 jet???
I'm looking at picking up a boat for the Kenai was wondering if anyone has had a 1860 Roughneck with a 35/50 Jet on it? Seems pretty underpowered but with the restrictions out there was wondering if any of you have done it? Thoughts/opinion. Also looking at the 1756 just like little more room.
I had a SeaArk 1652 with a 50/35 and it was just ok. I have a SeaArk 1860 with a 90/65 and it is great. I think a 50/35 isn't enough. BUT you don't need the jet for the Kenai and a 50hp prop would be just dandy for that boat.
I had a G3 1860- essentially the same boat with a prop and jet. Boat went great with a prop. Jet was OK with 2 guys and fishing rods. And the 3rd guy in there and it took awhile to get on step. Would I do it again. No
