Re: Atomic 4 inboard vs outboard



I can say with complete assurance a 4HP outboard will move and 8000 pound Cal 29 no problem at 4.5 knots because i did it for 18 miles when i rescued the boat to be refit



I can say with REALLY complete assurance that my 1970 atomic 4 is a vastly superior way to move the boat and after decades of abuse it required a valve job and some gaskets and seals

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
