Time for footings sponsored by boat by ZA 10000 boats online, you know, it's not uncommon in the market to find a used outboard powered boat with a motor newer than the boat itself. That's the story. This week's footings subject, a 1990, Sunday Express, that's been repowered with an impressive. 115 Johnson originally made in Franceville, Quebec, Sunday boats, specialized in mid-sized runabouts and for being almost twenty years old. This Sunday does show its signs of age, but is held together much better.Then a lot of other boats in its age bracket aside from the repowered, outboard it's hard, not too immediately.
Notice the updated matching Navy tonne cover heading into the bow you'll find storage under both of the bow cushions that's deep enough for life jackets or a small anchor. The seating is very comfortable, but a little cozy for two adults. However, its perfect size for the kids behind the non-skid step is a great place for the spotter to sit with excellent visibility for water sports for the. Driver the helm is comfortable and simple with an opening side vent to help air movement for a small boat.
You don't need many gauges. So all the warning lights are housed in the updated each that came with the motor. The rest are housed in a matte black panel that matches the throttle and wheel with the switches down to the right on the companion side, there's, a mount for a depth finder. And a lockable storage compartment with plenty of space. The seating is plush gray and blue vinyl that has a bit. Of wear and tear, but shows no signs of UV wear or major ribs. The double back seating design is classic 80s and 90s, especially when folded out to the Sun pad position for catching some rays there's, plenty of storage in the two-tiered gunnels.
And it is a great place for tow-ropes or extra lines there's seating on each side of the airport as well. And underneath the starboard side, you'll find the fuel line's battery and oil tank to port at the transom you'll find a small reporting ladder that leads. Up to the non-skid step for re-entry, you know, these Sunday Expresses are a lot of fun. There may be small, but you got the 115 powering it plenty of seats for spotters. And with the ski, pylon water. Sports all day long.
The 1999, Johnson 115 is replacement of the original, 90 horsepower Evinced and is still in excellent shape for being a decade old. Aside from some small paint scratches that drive improper like new and wouldn't need replacing or maintenance before purchase. The same is under the cowling.
The 115 is a v4 design with all mechanical in great shape and working order heading out for the water test the 115 rocket at the Sun right out of the water in 220 miles per hour and four seconds and I could immediately feel. This was a secure and well-built boat. The hull cut out all water noise and had a cruise of 31 miles per hour at 4000 rpm, the helm at a sound, reading of only 93 decibels, the turning was agile and very sharp this 17 footer carved around and crossed its own weight with ease. Which makes a boat like this perfect for carving in and out of a small Cottage Lake, especially with someone being towed behind so far, you know, I'd really recommend this boat for the boat owner who loves sports its quick, its agile, the steering's a little tight, but it's certainly 100% fun on the water.
I found the Sunday cruise nicely at 25 to 30 miles per hour with a little trim required to really get the tight turns without cavitation, the 115 Johnson provided plenty of horsepower, and it's. Reassuring to know, there's, still, lots of throttle left for when you want to put them down and speed away, you know, let's be honest here. This boat is a 90 that may raise some concerns, but with the repowered engine, and even the new canvas, you can be plenty sure that you'll still have lots of years of fun on the water.
