Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

Question around weight distribution. I think we are a little heavy in the aft. I can move my trolling motor and accessory batteries from back hatches up to the center forward hatch and that would move 180 + pounds as inicated below. Is that overkill or would it get me where I should be? All input is...

Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

A nice picture from vacation last week starting out in Killarney, Ontario and moving well beyond the cell tower(s) from there. We stayed on the in-laws mainship in teh background, our Phantom tied up along side (when we weren't fishing)

Thanks Guys appreciate the quick feedback. My choices are Etec 150HO (165HP) at only 418 pounds or 200HO (220HP) at 530 lbs. What I really wish I knew is how much of the 55 extra HP (and gas) will be chewed up the extra 110 pound difference?
