New Repower: Check Out The New 100s on Jubal

More performance, less fuel and a smoother ride: Here’s what Charles Wright has to say about taking out his newly repowered Ace Cat 555 Jubal

Beautiful sound. Sleek new looks. And the performance to match. Port Elizabeth local and something of a legend in SA light-tackle fishing circles Charles Wright took his newly repowered 5.5-metre cat out for the first time recently. And here’s what he had to say about the new Suzuki DF100s we fitted along with brand-new hydraulic steering.

“You have to love the performance on these Suzuki four strokes,” Charles beams, “they’ve just got a bit more grunt in them. We took Jubal with the new motors out for the first time last Saturday and, boy, do they run well. I had to keep playing on that edge between too much and just having fun out on the water.”

“I had two 90hp two strokes on before, and you know I’ve never been tempted by the big Suzukis because I’m a light-tackle angler, so I go after skates and sharks around the harbour, a river mouth, Swartkops and such. You know, easy-going, maybe up to Richards Bay or Velddrif.

“But my sons wanted to be able to go out fishing at Rye Banks in PE. And even deeper. So, for that, you’re going to need something with a bit more oomph. So it was they who pushed for me to get the new Suzukis.

“They said you could probably get the same kind of fuel consumption with a lot more power from the Suzuki 100s. And I wasn’t too sure at first. But after the test the other, I think they’re right, the Suzukis are really light on fuel.”

“The steering is something I have to get used to,” Charles says. It’s a brand-new system we fitted on Jubal and it’s more responsive, which works well with the stability you get from the DF100s.

“You know, the ultimate with a boat is just when you can get it on a plane easily. And this setup definitely lets me do that. So, very happy,” Charles concludes.
