Re: Stoltz Boats
Hey I just bought stoltz 25 and I was wondering if a yamaha 8 hp longshaft, low thrust propellor out board motor will be enough to power it through the tides and weather around the east side of vancouver island
You should be fine. We all aim for slack current at the narrows anyway, sometimes foolhardy not to.
As long as the installation is such that the prop doesn't come out of the water easily, should be no worries.
Congrats on the boat.. Name? we'll keep an eye out for you!
