That`s the beauty of Stratos boats in general and a tribute to its best seller, the 285 Pro XL/DC, an 18-foot, 8-inch dual-console model designed specifically with the serious amateur and budget-minded pro in mind.
71 mph @ 6000 rpm. “This is a new boat to me and my first bass boat. I also have a Stratos DC180 deep V hull used as a bay boat.” 24 Stryker, 8″ Slidemaster jackplate, Garmin 93sv, Motorguide Xo5.

1. Length. While larger bass boats (18 to 19 feet) with larger outboards are terrific for big lakes, midsize and smaller bass boats (typically 16 to 17 feet) with smaller outboards can be ideal in other locations.

The 1995, 278 V is a 17.75 foot outboard boat. The weight of the boat is 1340 lbs. which does not include passengers, aftermarket boating accessories, or fuel.
The beam of your boat is the width at the widest part of the boat. To measure the beam, stand inside the boat and run a measuring tape from the port (left) side to the starboard (right) side at the widest section of your boat.
Beam – A measure of the width of the ship. There are two types: Beam, Overall (BOA), commonly referred to simply as Beam – The overall width of the ship measured at the widest point of the nominal waterline. Beam on Centerline (BOC) – Used for multihull vessels.
Stretching 18`6″ in length, the 285 XL delivers exceptional confidence and unrivaled maneuverability.
The 1995, 258 V is a 15.5 foot outboard boat.
At 20`8″ in length and rated for a maximum of 250 horsepower, the 201 XL devours rough water, is impressively responsive and extremely stable.
A lower pitch will give you a better hole shot. Most bass boats run a 25 or 26 pitch prop. Some that carry really heavy loads or extremely large boats might run a 24. Some faster boats run a 27.
An angler`s best bet is to look around 10 feet in depth for the giant bass, but this can vary. Generally, the shallow fish are the smaller males, and the fish at the most profound parts are too lethargic to chase, so the perfect targets are the fish at about 8-12 for depths.
Longer boats are better able to span waves meaning they can reach across from one wave to the next, providing a much smoother ride. With the right amount of power and speed, you can skip right over 3-4 foot waves in a larger boat and not feel a thing (especially in glass boats!).
For most boats, an engine`s most efficient running speed falls between 25-30mph. Diesel engines find their sweet spot somewhere beyond 1800rpm. Gasoline outboards usually find it between 3000-4000rpm.
The safest way to determine how much horsepower you need for your boat is to know the total weight of your boat. The rule of thumb is to have 25-40 pounds of weight per 1 horsepower. If your boat weight is 800 pounds you would need a 32-20 horsepower engine.

Need the wire diagram to rewire my Ariens lawnmover to bypass the safety switch. It is Ariens GT-19 model # 931026 Serial # 001463.
Can you help? It is an old Ariens mower but still runs good but now I need to bypass the safety switch in order to run it any longer. The local Ariens dealer said I need to go through the internet and get the wire diagram as they cannot give it to me directly. They told me I needed the wire diagram and the part involved in bypassing the safety switch. Hope this is all the information you need to help me.

Thank you. Roger Fielitz

ANSWER : Here is owner manual: the switch is behind the ignition, sometimes at the N position of gearshift, just look for a switch with one wire coming in & one going out (usually the same color); disconnect the two wires & jumper them together to bypass the switch. Looks like yours has one under the seat.

2005 Mercury 50hp 2-stroke outboard motor very sluggish when accelerating, stalled twice when trying to exceed 50% throttle capacity. Last time I used my boat was about two months ago, so I don’t think bad fuel is the problem. I let my boat idle at the boat launch for probably 5 mins before taking off. I didn’t notice any weird sounds or any indication that my motor was running any different than normal. After only a couple of minutes of running my boat up river I gave more throttle(probably 75% power) when it started to bog down. I immediatly kicked it out of gear and checked to see if something was caught around my prop but there was nothing there. From then on everytime I put the motor in gear and gave it throttle it would barely respond and stalled twice. Any suggestions to what this might be? Thanks, Newt.
ANSWER : The carberator is gravity fed and there is propbably gunk in it, when you give it more throttle, it needs more gas but can’t get it. Then a build up of gas in the float bowl occurs and nothing works right. It has happened to me and its aggravating, do a complete rebuild on the carb or just replace it and you will be happier quicker.

Hope this helps, Coachtheune
