I want to buy a Mercury with 150/200hp. (this is the plan)
I'm 18 years old so i haven't that much money for new stuff.. it's only the beginning

Warrior 20ft

Illegal ...and shoddily built, ( the ones that I have seen )

But then , thats amateurs for you.

Its a good job that most true enthusiasts can tell the difference between something Steve , Terry or I have produced and would not be seen dead in Ersatz but lookalike hulls.

Shakespeare purchased 3 designs in the 70s and produced them successfully for a time.

I have dual cable steering in my boat.. What is the price of the 150 Mariner (PM).. I think about a 150 or 200hp..

I've bought a Trailer (Freewheel 1814LB) and an outboard. It's a Mercury 150HP V6 Black Max, i think it from 1982 but i dunno for sure.. Has anyone an idea for a good prop ? (i haven't one yet..)

If you still learning i would go for a Laser II probably 21" or 23" - very forgiving prop..
