Holland - Distance off shore versus Depth

Recommended Posts

I used to go out of South Haven in my 15.5 footer with a 60 hp Mercury and 6 hp kicker to 200 FOW in calm water up to 2 footers without a problem.  I'd recommend a radio and a smart phone with accuweather radar bookmarked to watch for what is coming.

Thanks Creekerman.  I have everything you mentioned with the exception of the kicker.  I know it's risky going out with only 1 power plant.  Mine is a 70 hp Suzuki.  It's been incredibly reliable but you just never know.  I'd feel better if I had a 4 or 6 hp kicker.
