Quicksilver 500 pilothouse fast fishing/day boat MY 2005.
Mercury 60 four stroke, fuel injected outboard with almost new (11hours) Bigfoot gearbox.
The boat also comes with the original gearbox that is perfect having done less than 150 hours like the boat and engine.
Power tilt and trim.
I upgraded to the Bigfoot for higher cruising speed and to get onto the plane faster.
This boat will do 21kn with 3, 6’4” fat gits and 2 children aboard.
Having compared fuel economy you get 12% better economy than with the standard box.
Last run out we did 46nm on a tank and we carry the same in plastic cans again.More than enough for a good day’s fishing.
She handles very well and we have been out in a 7 and felt comfortable enough to wait it out.She is very easy to handle.
