Here's my boat! 2006 Lanier Custom Boat FastCat 20'3" w/ Yamaha 300 HPDI.
Lately I did some fiberglass work to repair some cosmetic flaws left from the previous dumb ass, got a new Mercury Bravo I XS 26p to replace my Bravo I 26p to now use as a spare. Now I'm loading it with fishing gear. 2 10" subs, 4 7.7 components, 2 amps, 3 Lowrance units and a sonichub to control the radio from the Lowrance units, Optima batteries, Dual Pro 4 bank charger with easy access port, Yamaha engine trim remote at bow, Minn Kota I-Pilot 101 lb thrust on quick release mount & two Power Pole anchors.
To offset the top speed loss of the weight gained from all this gear I'm now looking into a 32p Hydro Motive Intimidator 4 prop, add a set back plate to be at 16" total, send my lower unit to Hydro Tec and have them modify it for better performance and hydrodynamics, order high performance parts for engine (where I need help).
Can anyone offer advice on what is not necessary or may damage my engine? Because I'm all in on this boat and balls to the wall. http://www.yamaha-rebuild.com/Yamaha%20High%20Perf.htm
Honestly I'm in this boat mainly for fishing. But I have the trolling motor on a release bracket so I can remove it easily and can remove 3 batteries if I want to just play and haul ass.
