Solved! Go to Solution.
Last summer I bought a Starweld 18 with a 115 ETEC.
The boat will 44MPH with a perfect cruise of 38MPH.
The 115 ETEC on a 18ft boat with a 90in beam will get the same economy as my old 70 Johnson two stroke on a 16ft boat with a 80 in beam.
The top speed of the Johnson 70 was only 30mph.
The upgrade to the ETEC on a larger more comfortable boat was well worth it and the enhanced performance is a definite plus.
Well last season I upgraded to a 90 e tec, from a 1988 90 Evenrude, it was a good engine but getting long in the tooth and hard on gas, well this new e tec has the same performance and alot less gas and oil, I have this on a 1988 Starcraft holiday 18 ft, I think will be good for another couple of decades lol
