I have a 2005 1775 pro-v with a 75 horse Yamaha on the back( Only rated for an 80). I weight about 350 and I cannot get it to plain out with a couple guys in there. Yeah i know maybe loose some weight but it ain’t happening. I even have 2 40lb anchors made out of steel in the front compartments for weight.What do you guys think about a Crestliner fish hawk 1850. With a 90 Suzuki because it is geared lower for a better whole shot.I bought it from Crystal Peirz Marine and they said i would have no problem plaining this boat out now they want me to switch to a 13 or maybe even an 11 pitch. How much is this going to drop my speed. I have a 15 pitch on there now and on the top end am running about 5500 rpm’s. Getting about 33-35 mph. They don’t carry Lund anymore so i was just wondering if you guys have been in one these fish hawks or not. I looked at the 618 ranger but i think i am going to have the same problem with that. I am a tiller guy who loves to sit on walleyes.
