Anyone have experience with a 25hp Subaru GTR on a round chine hull? I have a 18/44 GD hull and am considering down grading to a refuge legal motor. I know it won’t be fast, I have a bay boat to go fast, just wondering if I should go 23 longtail or if this used Subaru I found would be a better option?

GD originally developed that hull for 14 to 18HP LTs - not fast but very effective...

A 23 GDLT will push that hull thru wet concrete - lol - and is lighter than a SD but it may
just come to choice of easy driving with a SD or that last bit of extra push of a LT...

Also you will likely need smaller 9 inch diameter props in some HP restricted areas
so finding a quality source of these props or a local prop shop to modify them for a SD
will also be important... The 23 GDLT comes with a 9" and go 9x6 or less not 9x7 if
you go that route the 9x6 was my favorite prop for that motor on my GD 16x48...

Should work fine either way - just allow a bit of extra time to get out to your spots...

Yeah I’m probably just going to go with a longtail and keep my 37gdsd.

Found a 25 GoDevil FNR on a 16/44 GoDevil hull, think I’m going to get it and sell my rig. The FNR will be nice, plus most of the time I’m by myself or one other person

How much you want for the 1844 hull? It is the LT hull, right? Not the SD...

I’m looking at the option of buying a used 1844 GD LT hull..’01 vintage....needs a lot of work, though...:and dropping a 40 HP Backwater on it.
