    I'm looking at a 1997 Stratos bass boat w/ a 115 Mercury 2 stroke. I'm not sure of the prop. Just wondered if anyone has one, or knows the top speed on this boat. Thanks!

    What size boat??? 17'18'?? Would help to know what prop as well. Although it will never be a speed demon! 115's are dogs and I would be surprised to see anything above mid 40's to possibly 50 mph with the right set up.

    Sorry, it is a 17' bass boat w/ a 1997 Mercury 115. It has a 3 blade stainless prop.

    If i were to guess i would say top speed between 45 and 55mph.

    Stratos have a pretty quick hull. Id say mid to upper 40's. 50 with one person and a light load.
