Look after your old 2 stroke, never mind these 40kg anchors. Got a 2003 15hp Mercury 2 stoke, 32kg....it flies, will push a boat like this over 22 knots easy. Got all the "modern features" too, throttle/gear combo etc.

@Basalt Rock used to have 1999 merc 9.9 2 stroke. Now i have a suzuki 9.9 from 2015 and i can say that the suzuki is the overall better engine for sure

I have a 10 foot homemade flat-bottom boat that I run in Puget Sound with a 6 horse that goes 17 knots. Having a well trimmed engine (unlike the Suzuki) and the proper pitch prop would increase the performance numbers drastically.

I would reccomend a 9.9 yamaha. You can trim it to a 15 hp in a few fixes!

Felt the same, I'm looking at a 10hp and felt I learned nothing from this or reading the magazine article, the fact the Suzuki was a long shaft motor tells you all you need to know about the value of the overall results.

In addition to having to regulate the trim of 2 motors, if you want somebody besides those of your country to follow your videos, see if you will take lessons in diction because yours is horrible. It looks like you have two boiled potatoes boiling, in your mouth as you speak. I Could not understand a shit of what you said, besides the engines brands !

14 Knots on Yamaha 9.9 aye? My 2.3 Honda goes 12 knots trimmed.
Fiveo waf

What props did they use? At the end of the day 9.9 hp is just that, correctly set up I doubt there would be that much difference in performance, perhaps a little with the heavier Honda depending on the boat, but the same power should give about the same performance all other things being equal.

Hi Guys. I love this video. I’d very much like for you to join my Facebook group and share your inflatable boat experience and knowledge with the members if you could? Or even just to have a nose around. It’s https://www.facebook.com/groups/949885911828565/Many thanks. Carlo

I would not consider this a valid review for US buyers. Hands down the Suzuki 9.9hp is the best. It is the only 9.9hp that currently offers EFI.... Fastest Starting Most Reliable with todays Ethanol fuel!

Evans Channel yea, i had the 30hp Suzuki Lean burn before it came out in 2015. Best outboard engine ive ever had.. sold the 15ft rib and bought a little dingy instead. Easier to have back on the boat. It has a 1980 Suzuki 3.5hp. Im really impressed with it.. tohatsu is also one of my favorite outboard engines.

I posted a video of myself in a 12 foot or 14 foot aluminum boat with a 9.9 Johnson engine. Got on plane in less that 5 seconds.

Of course you're going to get spray off the Suzuki. Looks like you guys are just slapping the engines on and not bothering to adjust them to spec

Wow a lot of time passed but i wanted to write.. i couldnt even go 7-8 knot with my 6 hp Mercury with 3.80 Yamaha boat. Now i have 9.9 Yamaha 4 Stroke. With 2 guy it goes 30-32km/h but its not enough for this boat so im looking for a 20 HP Yamaha

Fiveo waf
Fiveo waf - 2 years ago
If you read the magazine article, the Suzuki was a long shaft they got by mistake, hence the spray etc. given how it performed even with that handicap, it was probably the best there performance wise. Without them being set up properly in terms of trim, prop size etc. to perform at their best on the boat used for the test the results are pretty much worthless.

Totally agree, testers were morons. The cavitation plate height must be adjusted to specs. Either raise or lower the motor on the transom (not trim angle).
