How fast can a jon boat go?

12 Foot Jon Boat Speed
10-15 mph is a good expectation for this boat size. This boat length will usually allow for a 5hp engine, with some models permitting up to 10hp engines. The 5hp engine will put you in the 10mph range, while the 7.50-10hp engines will push you 15+ mph.

Similarly one may ask, how fast does a 9hp boat motor go?

Assuming this is a light 14' utility boat and a standard 9.9, Mercury would recommend a 8.5 to 9.5 pitch prop for the OP's application and predicts a top speed around 20 mph.

Also Know, how fast will a 10 hp motor go? It completely depends on what sort of vehicle it is powering, and the grade you are climbing. To give you an upper limit, the current IHPVA record is 89 mph, 144 km/h. This is with an average power of about 1/2 horsepower (350–400 watts average).

Likewise, people ask, how fast will a 2hp outboard go?

How fast does a 50 HP boat go?

Top Speed of 50 hp Merc. I bought a 1999 Bass Tracker Pro Team 175 with a 2 stroke 50 hp Mercury. Right now with 2 people and gear I am maxing out at around 28 mph according to my phone gps. I wasn't expecting to be flying accross the lake when I bought it, but figured I should be around ~35 mph.
