All our outboards now electric-start Hondas
All of our Honda outboards this year will be electric-start models!
To start these motors you simply put the motor in neutral, leave the throttle turned to the lowest setting and push the start button. The motor will start and if cold, will automatically give itself some choke and advance the idle speed. As soon as the idle speed slows down the engine is warm and you can go on your way. When the motor is warm you just start it and proceed immediately.
We will have 18 electric-start Honda 20 hp outboards on 16-foot Lund boats this season. This motor and boat setup has proven ideal over the years. It will push two anglers along at about 24 mph which means you can reach the farthest of our fishing spots in no more than 20 minutes. The Lunds are great boats for handling any type of wave condition.
The 20 hp Hondas are legendary for being whisper quite and for trolling like a dream. The motors produce no smoke and are wonderfully fuel-efficient.
New at camp this season will be an 18-foot Lund SSV model powered by a 25 hp electric start Honda. We will reserve this boat for larger guests or for people fishing three-to-a-boat. This boat has two rows of split seats that should make moving around even easier.
We are also trying a new 16-foot SSV Lund model that has a split rear seat in a slightly different configuration than our other Lunds. If anglers like this model we will likely use it to gradually replace our other boats.
The SSV Lunds have a more V-shaped hull that is said to ride even more smoothly in rough water than the earlier models which were themselves famous for their ride and stability. The SSVs come with ready-made floors to make a level surface for standing and fishing.
