Poly - Bushman Boats

Post by sargeman13 » Thu May 10, 2012 8:54 pm

Hi I have inherited a nice little 3.75 Bushman boat, and am after some information on it (internet hasn't been helpful)

anyone aware of the maximum HP they are rated for, can't find a builders plate on it.

Just after some insight to how stable they are and would a 15hp 2stroke be enough power for it?

Thanks for your help

Originaly built by Bushman Tanks in Dalby around 10 years ago most of the guys i know that had them ran 25hp outboards, They are heavy little boats but you can knock them around a heap! I know the guys that built the rota molds for them and they used the old style quintrex explorer for insperation.

Thanks heaps for that information, i am running a 15hp 2 stroke now and it is a heavy little boat, but I plan on upgrading soon to a 25hp when the budget allows and I have to finish all the modifications first, casting decks, electric etc before i know how underpowered it is

Thanks again
