Great boat.
Was that an ALLGLASS fly bridge converted to CC?
150 Mercury 4stroke is a great motor. I'm running one on my 23 SeaOx. Love it, I get 43 MPH WOT

I'm running one on a fairly heavy boat, 6.4m Caribbean Reef Runner ( evolved from Bertram 21/Pride bahia mar), Australian manufacture. bare hull was 1020kg, fully fulled with normal fishing gear likely to be around 3600 lb in your money. Got 38knots @5500 on sea trial. (43.7 MPH) with a 14.5x 17P Enertia



tried one inch down on pitch to get the max revs, dropped 2 knots and not a single RPM more So settled for the 17P
Really like this motor, and they are a popular choice for this particular hull, which has a max transom rating of 200HP.

Photos below towards the end of the build.

I have both a Mirage and Enertia. Analog tach speed by gps.

Mirage plus 15 Wot 5400. 38 mph
Enertia 14. Wot 5600. 38 mph
Enertia 17. Wot 5200. 39 mph

The Mirage gives me better mid range cruise.
The Enertia seems to not lift the stern as much which make the boat handle a little better less chine walk at top end. . I think the happy spot for the 150 is 3200 to 4400 rpms which I think you could run nonstop.

thank you that's some great information, I wonder if it's common that people experience more stern left with the inertia then the Mirage. Impressive little engine I'm still getting used to the sound of it. There is a fellow big shrimp been on here that has some great numbers on a 23 seacraft with the same engine. And he travels loaded

ALLGLASS was the predecessor to PACEMAKER which became EGG HARBOR I believe. ALLGLASS was made entirely out of fiberglass, no wood. Thus the name. I love those old school boats.

I never go WOT. Anything around 30 MPH is good enough for the ocean.

Great numbers! Your boat is an economical boat with solid performance which proves it is all about the rigging and set up. Most people would have said your boat is underpowered before you numbers.

Actually some smart people in the boat building business told me the 150 would be fine, it's sweet spot is around 18 knots .it's hard for some individuals to wrap there head around that a 300 horse may not be the best option for this particular hull. Now onto our regular programming
