    Default Expectations, of HP.

    Why is it that when people go from a V hull boat with big HP to a pontoon with low HP they think that the speed should be adequate.???
    I see in PDB that the Mercury Verado 400R is for pontoons
    So think it thru, 115/400 Hum ???
    just saying.

    People have caught on to how nice a boating experience the pontoons can be. Now like every other motorized device, we will try to make them go faster. It's evolution.
