I'm looking at a few Lund Pro-V's and they have a 115 HP on them.

I know that they're not maxed out and that will get a few saying they need to be....but for those of you that have them, what are your performance numbers?

If it were me I would max the HP or get a larger motor. I bought one boat rated for 75 and it had a 40 on it, thinking I was saving money when in the long run it was a pretty bad decision, I was never happy with the performance and always kicked myself for doing it in the ensuing years.

It's a used boat so I'm not changing it.

There were a lot of those sold... and 42 (GPS) is accurate.
Some were a tad faster.

Thanks guys.

T Mac: Even the new ones I've looke at are equipped with the 115. Only one hasn't been.

If I was buying new, I'd get the 150, but I'm looking at used ones right now.
Thanks again guys.
