    Pulse 185 setback?

    Currently have a CMC Hydraulic @ 5.5" and 2" spacer. Thinking about replacing the 2" with a 6" but I may look for an 8" which would put me at 13.5" total. 185 nose is a bit heavier than the closed bow so think a bit further back might benefit me more.

    Merc 175 Black Max on 16'5ft Predictor?

    I had a 16'5 Enticer (Open Bow version) that had a V6 150 on it for years with a L&S jack plate and I can tell you it never swamped a bit. should weigh in the same as your 175.

    91 Pulse 185

    agreed its pretty heavy for an 18 footer @ 1200+ pounds. I have a jack plate and additional setback on mine with a Mariner 175 and a 23 pitch nothing fancy prop, it will push her into the low 60's. Soon I'll be swapping the 1989 2.4L 175 powerhead for a 1996 2.5L 200 model. Can't wait to see how...
