Flylow cant handle that his stuff doesnt perform like your boat. That beautiful boat of his will never compare to a boat that is set up for running . His boat is a luxury riverboat that has good performance. It will never outrun your boat . 4 mph on a long run will make a huge difference. Do a run from nenanna to the koyokuk and head upriver. Approximately 600 miles each way. 4 mph i would have my moose killed and he would just be showing up. I hope everyone is staying safe with all this virus stuff going on. Flylow i watched your build from the beginning you have a great boat! It is luxurious and great looking. I am not knocking it at all.

Ya, and a lot of people can't handle the fact that I built the hull and motor in my shop.

FYI, my blue hull with 460/212 is even slightly faster yet, with its progressive radius bottom...it can't quite pack the load and doesn't even come close to the performance in white water.

The first hull, with 6LP/212, didn't come close to the power of either boat, but it does burn 5.5 gph and that it what the customer wanted.

All assumptions. You might need a ride, so your not pulling "facts" out of your a$$. He cruises at 39mph?

More cabin fever and it's coming into spring. Bring the boats to the river and I will bring some cold drinks and chicken and we can watch a race. LOL

[quote="mgrant"]I'm done with this thread.



Well that would be unfortunate for all of us, you are a wealth of knowledge. Forums can lead to many assumptions, which is too bad. I forgive you for what you have said about me and wouldn't mind meeting you on the river for some more bench racing.

Does the 241 produce more thrust than a 912? The 241 has a bigger intake impeller and nozzle.
I'd like to see some nice Scott graphs comparing the two. I think the masses would except that it is cost prohibitive to use the same boat.
When I look at the hydraulic system on the Scott it doesn't seem as clean and protected as the Hammi. Now that Hammi is throwing some weight around and dropping the price below the Scott is there a reason not to go with a 241? :Drink:

I think it all comes down to how big of a boat and what you are going to do with it. Smaller boat not wanting to haul huge loads the 912, Mainly because you are going to want the extra speed you are going to get and probably a little more acceleration snap along with having a Trim nozzle is just plain Fun. :-D 8-) If you have a big boat and want to haul lots of people or cargo then you will probably want the 241 for its load hauling ability. And for sure the Hamilton Hydraulics are superior to the Scott. Yes it is as Simple As That!! :Drink: :Drink:
