Trolling Speed

Discussion in 'Boats and Motors' started by Angler Ron, Apr 2, 2005.

  1. Just bought a new 50 horse Merc. I am not familiar with them so I need some help. Can anyone tell me what a trolling speed with this size engine would be? :confused:

    Thanks in advance,

    i got a 50 hp 2stroke on a 16 deep v tracker (est 1500lbs ) it will idle about 2.5 mph no wind, and flat water. to slow it down to 1.5 i just tie off a few buckets to the side cleats.


  3. Thanks for the info Sowbelly
