That's a sweet looking setup there... Looks wide, lots of room..
I'm interested in hearing about the performance with the bigger motor.
The last thing I'd heard about a shallow water was it had a 115 and it did pretty good...

Lil test drive today!! For the first run was super impressed with the hole shot. The pump stays loaded up in some pretty heavy corners.. the boat feels super buoyant, and you can trim the motor way up and it's still stays loaded tell it's just shooting a roster tail in the sir.. and I don't have any load fins on the pump yet ..

How did that 140 perform in comparison to the Honda and Yamaha 115's that were on the other Shallow Waters?
If the holeshot was impressive with this setup, do you think the intake fins on the foot would make it better?
Thanks.

well the Yamaha was a 150 /105 jet.. The Suzuki is 140/90 and is light for sure and seems to have good power. The Honda was the heavyest at the 115/80 hp but seems like the torque is the same as the bigger HP motors.
were going back to the water for round 2..

It "would seem" that the Suzuki 140/98 jet vs the Yamaha 150/105 jet would be a wash since the Suzuki is 85lbs lighter then the 150 (495# vs 410#) and it's also running a bigger jet (7 5/8" vs Yamaha's 7 3/8")..
The Honda's run good, but heavy when compared to similar outboards...The Honda 115 is 10# lighter then the Yamaha 150..
Did round 2 happen yet?

Well they both ran great.. we put 8 guys in the boat and it ran good. We figured we were close to 1800 lbs.. the Suzuki has great hole shot.. so it has 1/4 bottom and uhmw.. it stayed loaded great and still no load fins.. with 6 guys in each boat the Yamaha powered boat was fast top end but came out of the hole a little slower.. but the Yamaha has a 14 degree radius bottom..

I think there's a hyperlink missing? Are you teasing us? :) video would be awesome.

If I understand you correctly, it sounds like the Yammi and the Suzuki were put on two similar sized boats, but they had completely different style hulls so it's hard to give a good comparison?

I would be curious to see an apples to apples comparison between the Zuk 140/98 and the Yammi 150/105.

Thanks for posting the photos, love seeing the different build photos and reading about your impressions of the various motor combinations. Keep um coming!

Still no video...

That LED light bar looks cool. How does it work in that configuration?
Did intake fins ever get installed?

So how'd the fins work out? Did they keep the jet loaded up good? Create drag and slow ya down? Or no difference whatsoever?
Curious to see the pics/vid as well....
