  • My new Sea Nymph 14R

    Hi Picked up my first ever boat on Saturday, a Sea Nymph 14r, unsure of the year of manufacture (not stated on the omc plate). Very please with it, it did 19 mph on its first run with a Suzuki DF15hp. I will have to test outboard trim & make adjustments to get best performance as it got to 16mph on half power but seamed to gain little extra speed when at max.Click image for larger version

    How do SN's handle in a 1-2 foot sea - I was planning to launch in more sheltered sea estuaries. These boats seem to be quite rare here in the UK, not surprising being 20 -30 years old.

    Congrats on the "new" SN 14R and welcome to the forum. My 14A gets about 5.5 to 6 mph with an Evinrude 3.3, so you are probably in the ball park of top speed. I can't change or adjust the trim on that motor while I am moving. I don't run my motor much above 2/3 throttle because, like you mentioned, there's very little gain in speed.

        My 14A handles 1ft chop very well, can't speak for the 2ft stuff yet.
