    Blue Fin 4.5 open dingy

    Hi all what are the 4.5 Colts like. Look solid (3mm bottom and 2mm side) from early in their production life. 40hp 2 stroke should be lively enough for 2-3 boofheads?

    Cheers

    I have the 4.5 predator 3mm all over with a 60 hP 2 stroke ,a 50 is ok but I think a 40 would struggle but take it for a ride and see what you think .. matt

    Took it for a spin. The 40hp Tohatsu started very quickly from cold and went hard popping the boat, battery, 2 full fuel tanks (50l total), 2 spare wheels and tyres and safety gear etc and 3 heavy blokes up onto the plane easily and quickly. Impressive torque. Boat purchased.... fantastic build quality. Welds are excellent. Impressive gusseting etc. I am keen to add an electric. Cheers
