  • Motor to boat ratio

    Hey guys!
    quick question open for opinions here.
    A Yamato 102 mod motor came into my crosshairs this morning, and was thinking about jumping on it.
    How much boat would you think’d be needed for that kind of spiciness?

    Let me rephrase that question.
    what kind of mph is a mod 102 good for on a good setup?

      75 mph would be respectable. So you want to make a Mod C or ie 500 Mod out of it? That is 75 on a hydro.

        There we go! I was kinda thinking in the neighborhood. “Eh Captain, I think we’re going to need a bigger boat!”

          Somewhat bigger than a C Stock Hydro.

            11’-11’6” could go bigger but this is what I would build for myself.

              Entler:
              I used to race a 102 MOD on a 11 foot hydro. I had no problem with it due to size and consistently ran 75 mph. I would suggest a 11'6" boat if your weight is in the moderate range.....150-175 lbs. I weigh +200 lbs. Hope this helps....
