The test: 100hp Mariner Outboards on Atlantic Fisher 550 boat in BFM

The test 550 was filted with a Mariner 100 hp 4 stroke outboard the maximum for this model though Richard recommends 80hp for best economy and allround performance.

As appears to be the norm when it comes to boat test days it was blowing up as storm or very nearly, on my visit to Myfort So, we were restricted to tne estuary for the most port, with it's 8-knot speed limit. though I'm advised the 550 is capable of 30 knots with the 80hp set up.

The uncomfortable short chop in the open estuary showed me how well the 550 handled cutting through the waves, throwing water wide. When I increased speed into waves she ploughed into them not trying to side over them - this is a very dry boat!

Turns, even in these conditions were smooth ond tight without only slip.In colmer waters a blip on the throttle during tight turns mode the 550 heel over slightly, but tie hull dug in with no slip. With an increase In speed and adjustment at the engine's power trim, she easlly come up onto the plone - but I hod to keep on eye on that 8-knot speed limit!
