"A friend and marine mechanic built me your Laker 14.
"I am using a 1989 Evinrude that was modified to turn it into a true SST 60 motor.
(Short shaft, SST gearcase, powerhead re worked by Wienandt Performance and dyno’ed at 118 hp at powerhead at 8,000 rpm)."
"Just went 64mph (gps) into a 7 or 8 mph headwind, was only able to glance at rpms briefly but they were near 7,000.
I am sure there is more speed in it with some more experimentation, but 64 is plenty exciting in your Laker 14!"
