Crestliner Fish Hawk 1750 for Winnebago
got up on plane in a heartbeat, and cruised nicely and sipped gas around 2000rpm and 22-23 mph ( that's from memory, but that was the sweet spot, motor was almost loafing, and the boat handled exceptionally well ) and a top end near 40... if you are in a race, you may not win, but for most travel, that is more than enough... in my opinion... I'm sure some want to go real real fast
boat handled some big rough water as well... of course, some common sense boat handling was used...again, imo
there's my experience for your analysis
oh, and it was a great fishing platform as well!
The county landing off of A in neenah offers alot of sheltered spot to fish in any conditions. Islands, bays and curvy shorelines to block the wind.
