I just sold my 1972 13 Sport and would like to find a decent used 99 or 00 13. I have come across 4 in my area all either have 30s or 25 2 stokes. I am sure this has been thoroughly covered, but I am too lazy to go searching, does anyone have some input on how this boat performs with these different motors?

Also, anyone know what a factory cover costs, and how it attaches to the gunn'l.

Thanks,
Dan

Howdy, HSM. 25 with a 25, close to 40 with a 40. Forty is scary as heck in a 13.

Were I powering a 13 I would look closely at the small EFI Mercs.

Sorry, thats supposed to be 25 4 strokes,

JB

Thanks, I did go back a little and found a few posts from people that had just bought new 13's with 25 4's. I am leaning more toward the 30 2 stroke, I don't plan on using the boat for skiing, but I don't want it to be underpowered. Would you (or any one else) say that a new (2000) 30 horse merc would be the equivilent to a mid 1980's 35, or how close to an older 40 (which is what I had on my 72 13) I never really understood shaft horse power compared to prop rated horsepower.

Thanks,

Dan

Howdy, HSM.

Your mid-80s 35 was rated at the prop. I think you would need to use your GPS to tell the difference in performance between it and a new 4S 30.

I also would expect you to be able to ski if you wanted to behind a 25. My '75 13S with three adults aboard would plane in a few seconds and run 25 wot, 20 cruise at 3/4 throttle. Power was an '85 OMC 25.

Classics usually perform well with anything about half or more of rated hp.

The 13 that I just got rid of was my 3rd, all having differnet propulsion (1978 35 Evinrude, 1993 40 Evinrude, and 1981 40 Merc)They all perfomed about the same, the 40 Evinrude was purchased new and obviously performed the best. I am just a little worried that the increased weight of the newer hull may not be the best match up for the heavy 25 4 stroke. The 30 2 stroke is lighter and obviously more powerful.

Hi HSM.

When I start looking through current and 2001 brochures I find a range of 150 to 200 lb loaded with 25 to 40 hp 2 and 4 strokes.

I don't think even 50lb is going to make a noticable difference on a 13. That is one very small child, about the weight of an extra tank of fuel.

No, I am just looking at buying the whole package. I had enough fun tinkering with the 72 model, now its time for a late model, warranteed, low maintenance, no wood, boat that I can actually USE wrather than work on.

Try Woodard Marine located in southern vermont near the boarder. They may have some leftovers. I know he has two leftover Montauks 2001 and he might have a leftover 13. You can make a good deal with them. It's where I am buying my new Montauk. Just ask for Bob Woodard
(802) 265-3690 and tell him that Ray suggested you call and that i said he should give you a good deal.

He also may have some used 13's They are located on the Lake in Hydesville,Vt.
