Re: 18ft Plymouth Pilot - Inboard to Outboard

you would need at least a 40 hp engine, i own a 16 ft plymouth pilot with a 30 hp suzuki out board and that can achieve about 10 knots but you will have to make sure that the trim is properly set outherwise at full speed you will find an ingress of water due to the boat cutting through the water at the wrong angle and water coming over the side, all it needs is carefull adjustment and a balanced load and it will sit lovely at full speed. preferably have an outboard with stabiliser fins this will also help.
good luck chris
