Hi Gerry I’m getting good at setting up the boat, and the family loves this unit! The 20 hp Honda pushes the HD 470 at about 10 to 18 mph. Love this boat and would recommend a Seamax boat to anyone. We get lot of on lookers when we set up or tear down. One idea I have to improve the boats is a larger d ring on the bow so a person can get a good hold on it for launch or landing reasons.
