Post 1854 excel swf4 hdr37efi
Finally bit the bullet and went with an excel. So far I'm very pleased with the quality and performance of this setup.

2016 1854 excel swf4 .125 upgrade
Tall transom
11 gallon fuel tank
Rod box
Livewell
Starboard storage with tray
3' bow rails
Spud poles
Hunt deck
Optifade waterfowl camo boat and motor
3000lb winch

Motor
2016 Mud buddy hdr 37 efi stock

Deep water light ( me 270, 11 gallons of gas, spud poles, onboard charger, all safety equipment, 2 batteries, and livewell full of ice and drinks) 27mph
26 steady.

Deep water (heaviest so far. Me 270, 2 buddies 180, 220, and everything as before in the light load) 23mph
22 steady

Havnt seen much shallow water that I could run wide open in yet. I'll post those speeds as soon as I get a chance

Went out riding with a few buddies and I held my own with a gatortrax with a hd 7000. He only had one passenger, I had 2. You could tell he had more low end, but the top end wasn't that much faster than mine.

Interested to see what you get for shallow water speeds. That's a big heavy boat. I'm ordering a 37hdr this week and am wondering what my stripped down 1644 will run with one.

This boat is around 800lbs I think. 22 mph with around 1000lbs extra, it still got on pad easily. I'm guessing yours will run pretty good. I'll try to find a good flat next weekend so I can post the speeds

Nice rig , my son has the 1851 with MB7000 2013 model. His will do mid to upper thirties with a lite load at 4700- 5000 rpm. Great boat for breaking Ice, got a good test this last season.

We built a heavy aluminum plate, which mounts in the same holes as his LED lite bar. Then mounted the anchor winch to it. Winch is a TRAC pontoon winch with remote. Saves getting up to retrieve anchor when fishing. Really spoiled us olefarts with bad backs.
