Nice balanced rig for sure! I bet it would go about 45-48 mph gps speed, that might read 50+ on the speedo. Lots of people love that motor, but I am not familiar with it. The hull is great and solid. You will get wet on rough windy days, but all but the big glass boats would as well on real rough days like that.

Have fun with it!

A buddy of mine has a 115 johnson and loves it. I fished with him all last week at Lac Seul, he with his Johnson and me with my Yamaha 150 and I have to say his Johnson was just at quite as my Yamaha if not more so.

You'l like the layout. We have a fairly old TP175 and like it quite a bit but if I was getting one today I'd look really hard at the Navigator as well. My only suggestion would be to get as much HP as the boat or your wallet can stand. Not so much so you can break a land speed record, but if you ever end up with a fat guy or two as fishing partners its nice to have the power to get out of the hole. Its also just plain fun to drive fast! smile

I have a 2006 185 nav. with a 150 yamaha & T-8 kicker. Bought this package new in 2006. I was told by a couple different dealers that the 140 johnson was made by suzuki (same motor as there 140) a buddy of mine has the suzuki 140 4 stroke on his lund 1700 fisherman it is a very nice motor.

I'm assuming the motor is an '06 or '05. Suzuki did make Johnson 4 strokes up to 2006. I don't believe Johnson has a 140 4 stoke after that time (might be wrong.)

I've got a 175 TP cs with a 140 Suzi and a T8. I'll get 42-3 max by myself. I doubt you'll see over 45, definately not 50. BUT, you'll love that set up. Very nice boat and motor, IMO. Good luck.

Oh, ya, you'll get wet on a windy / wavey day if your going anything but directly with or against the waves. But still a lot better ride with the reverse chine and deep V than alot of aluminum boats I've been in, esp. if trimmed correctly.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
