05 Lowe 160W Motorguide 46#. 34 mph (speedo). "Got this little boat a   T-Shred - CA
05 50 Evinrude E-Tec couple of weeks ago (Feb.2007) and it is a joy. This was the  
  last year for Lowe to build the "step-down" transom and the  
  chine angles make this one of the best handling 16' tin boats  
  ever made. My only beef so far is the lack of any decent rod  
  storage for poles over 5 or 6 ft. They changed that in '06 but   
  also did away with the killer hull design. OBTW: They don't  
  put the E-Tec on it anymore. This little engine is rip snorting  
  little beast. Overall I'm thrilled with my purchase so far."

01 90 Evinrude Ficht FW46FB 12V. 52 mph (speedo). "To get 52 gotta trim up,  
  gets a little hairy. Adding 610 Humminbird indash sender for  
  high speed running. Great boat, love my Evinrude. Boat may  
  need a little more storage but then we all usually carry way too  
  gear, be safe everybody, River Rat ...."

03 90 Yamaha "Great boat and engine combination, runs well, rides smooth,  
  turns quick and very comfortable. Only one issue; the   
  Humminbird Max20 quits working above 20 mph, starts again  
  when I slow down to 20 or below. Lowe acknowledges the   
  problem and recommends moving the transducer from the  
  transom (where THEY mounted it) to the step between the   
  transom and where the V hull ends. Says that turbulence is the   
  culprit causing the malfunction. This move appears difficult to  
  do. Anyone having resolved this problem Please email me the  
  solution that worked for you."

  45 mph @ 5300 rpm (gps). "Had this boat 2 years, not the   
  best boat in the world but it's mine and I have been pleased   
  with it. Still playing with props, so far I have liked the current  
  one the most, although I would like to bump the rpms up a bit  
  more. Thinking about putting a SE200 hydrofoil on to help with  
  the lower speed porpoising...anyone else out there got one on  
  their rig?"

05 50 Johnson 34 mph @ 6200 rpm (speedo). "Lowe puts unsealed rocker

04 Lowe 180W MinnKota 65#.  44 mph (speedo). "I never thought I'd like a   Ken - NC
05 90 Yamaha tin boat as well as I like this one.  Fast enough for my needs,  
  stable on the water, and lightweight for towing.  Lowe seems  
  to have the quality among welded aluminum, better than the  
  Tracker I looked at.  Anyway, I've decided I made the right  
  choice at the right time...I like the Yamaha 4-stroke 90 hp  
  better than the Mercury available for 2005's."

  55 mph @ 5500 rpm (gps). "Took some tweaking like  
  moving as much weight to the back as possible. Full windshield  
  took some of the speed off the top but the comfort more than  
  makes up for the loss of some speed."  
03 Lowe 170W MinnKota TM. "This is my first boat, haven't had it on the  Bremman - New Brunswick
03 50 Johnson water as yet.  Can anyone advise me what pitch prop might

  stabilizer on it. It will not make a fast turn."  
    Updated 4/9/04.... "I cracked the bench seat fishing on a 9 degree morning.  
  Called dealer asking for prices and he said it would probably  
  be a lot but hasn't given me a quote yet. I'd like to change to  
  bucket seats or do something so I can have a step in the   
  middle. If anyone has done this please tell me what you did  
  and how much it was. Thanks...."

01 150 Evinrude "Still playing with props...I may need to decrease the pitch to  
  get slightly more rpms; don't want to raise the motor any more  
  than it is. Maybe a jackplate?"

     90 Mariner 5000 rpm. "Not sure what the right setup is, I just bought the  
  boat and for some reason the speedo is out, however   
  performs really well, but that's thanks to trim tabs provided  
  by Lowe, without them it's all over the place.  If some one   
  can e-mail me some bits and pieces of advice on the best  
  setup and what mph to expect.  Also if there is anything I   
  should be concerned with."
