    Nice looking hull. What are you putting on it for power?

    Default outboard power

    it had a johnson 200 on it but it needs a rebuild so i may but on a mercury 225. Not really sure the speeds it will run? can not find much info on this outboard hull.

    My guess is with a 225 and proper setback, you could see mid to high 70's. Jack plate and a nose cone/lwp would be necessary. Good luck.

    I am not extremely familiar with the hull. I know it runs well in a jet configuration when set-up properly. My guess is 6-10 inches with the bracket and another 6 inches with the jack plate. I run a 19' Daytona with 12 inches of set back. The hulls that are not notched on the running surface need setback.

    Good Luck.

    Not sure if you have any interest in these. Just scanned them from a pack of flyers that are from around 1987.

    I have one

    Its an 86' bought it a few years ago from origonal owner. Mine has a merc 150 2 LTR I think it has about 8" of set back. I tryed a 2" spacer and it helped on the top end 2 Mph but it was flexing the transom more than i liked.
    Right now i have the factory set back and engine is as high as it goes on the plate, the prop shaft is about 1.5" bellow the bottom of the hull. I have a standerd lower unit and has plent of water psi. I have tryed differnt props but a 3 blade 23pitch chopper seems to be best. Let me know if you have any questions about set up. post some more pics of yours please.

    There are two versions of the Eliminator Liberty; the 19’ that was designed for jet application and a 20’ that had a molded in splash well for outboard use. The blue Liberty posted by W.O.T. Marine appears to be the 19’ version, no splash well. Be aware, what works on the 19 may not work the same on the 20’ outboard version. There were more changes to the bottom then just adding a foot. Most all 20’ liberty OB’s, at least those built in Mira Loma had the motor bolted directly to the transom and did not use any spacers or set back. Very few had jack plates and those that did use the Land & Sea unit. I would not add anymore set back if you have the 20’model and use the land & sea jack plate; if I remember correctly it has around 5”. I never felt the jack plate was required as long as the motor was mounted at the right height from the start. The boat ran just fine with anything from 150hp to as much as 200hp. The hull is over 20’ so there are no restrictions on HP if you want to get brave and go for something with more power. The ones I drove performed great with the 150 hp motor in the standard location,no jack plate or set back. They planed quickly with no drama or prop slip and the light weight at the transom made them handle like sports cars. As for steering, you could go with a single ram hydraulic system such as IMCO, but a good Morse duel cable system should work just fine with the lower HP engines. Most ski locker doors are just plywood that was resin coated and covered with carpet. Just about any marine gauge will work; just remember to get a tachometer and trim gauge that works with the motor you install. The Liberty OB was and still is a great little family boats.
