Does anybody know if the 150 - 225 yamahas from the 80s/90s (2stroke) all were V6?
Is the Phantom as good a speed boat as I think it is or is Gilbert/Hydrolift better?
Further more how important
are the two hydraulic Trim tabs at tha rear for the ride smoothness?

Right. Was this nice Phantom 18 with a relatively small but good Yamaha 70
for only 2300 Pound Sterling here that tickled my bunny,
but now it's gone so maybe next year.
Crazy thing is it can take up to 225HP as in ths video

Phantom 18 Yamaha 225 PS 225 hp outboard Außenborder speedboat



By the way I found out it's V6 two stroke, 2.6 litre.
Fantastic engine.

Former First Lady Jacqueline Onassis LOVED speedboats, and could often be seen on lakes and bays in Massachusetts piloting OR water- skiing behind one...Because I'm a water baby I've been on a few. Kinda fun....little scary....must like the wind and water splashing and spraying!!

There are a couple of things I just can't do--ice skating is one. I tried water-skiing, it was fun, but I wasn't able to do it enough to become good at it. hug

Same here.

But my father was very good at ice dancing, being an amateur that is. He could do large nice circles and going backwards and everything. No idea how he larned all that being the macho man he was hehe.
