    Redfisher 16 F70 vs F90

    Plenty of people put the C90 2 stroke on the RF16. It swings the same prop as the F90, it just does it a little faster (2.00:1 vs 2.27:1 gear ratio). They are nearly identical in weight. I think the 2 stoke get around 5 knots more speed.

    Also, interestingly enough the F90 is the same motor sold in Australasia as the F80. Specs, size, weight, displacement are exactly the same. I still think the weight vs. hp payoff are in favor of the F70.

    I tend to agree. I have fished on a Hells Bay Boca Grande that had the F70 fitted. Admittedly it is a lighter rig but it is 18' and 6'6" beam. The rig had no probs with 3 men and gear. We were hitting 30knots and maybe a bit over at WOT. The owner said they liked the economy of the F70. Also saw seen one that had a C80 2 stroke on it and that apparently went very sweet. I have seen the odd RF16 with a F70 for sale so someone must know how they perform.

    I like the weight of the F70 being 257lbs. Has to be a pay off there given the F90 is 366lbs. The F70 also revs out a bit higher. The data I saw with the F70 on a RF16 was with a 4 blade prop and thet liked it a lot. I will find it someplace.

    After some performance data for the F70 option. Found this link in relation to the F90. F90 RF16 performance data Dang sure somewhere I found somthing similar for the F70 version but cant find it anymore. Has anyone got the RF16 with a 70 4 stroke and would like to share their findings? Thanks.
