Re: 26 m with a 90 hp?

I know I am just an X boat... but I have had a 90 hp on mine for a while now... love it.

But as you know... all of us X boats have a flat bottom! :D

I would only concerned with doing tight turns at high speed with your rounded bottom.

Check my website out for my 90 hp mod.

Re: Lead weights for ballast?

Downsizing our lives, and upsizing the boat for a liveaboard. Not in a hurry, will still be using the boat as much as always!
