Take a lesson from Trevor Bayne’s win at the Daytona 500 last year. You don’t have to have the fanciest most expensive equipment to win. When it comes to bass fishing, it’s the same story. And this boat will get you into the game.

Plenty of punch in the mid-range. Now we’ve got the Optimax two stroke on this boat of course, which gives you a lot of that mid-range punch.

Interview with Clint Starnes, Lowe Boats

Clint: These units are primarily sold with 50, 60, and 70 HP engines.

So 75 is the maximum for this boat, is that correct?

Clint: That’s correct.

Yeah I wonder how good is this all gonna take the waves?

Clint: Let’s try it out.

Yeah, we got some waves right here. Let’s hit ‘em.

Now when I was running this boat yesterday, I came this close to hitting 40 mph. That is plenty of speed!

Clint: Absolutely. It won’t win a drag race to your fishing hole, but it’ll take care of the needs of most fishermen.

Very nice.
