    RPT 2

    January 8, 2020


    hey gang I want to introduce you to the
    brand-new RPT 2.0 system from Sylvan what we’ve done is taken the legendary
    RPT pontoons and made them stronger than ever we found that as a pontoons gotten
    bigger and so has the horsepower, boaters want to take them to new places
    and we want to make sure that these pontoons are up for the job
    so we’ve reinforced the nose cone which takes the most abuse with this double
    bulkhead system as well as two channels our seams have been reinforced with a
    strut and not only that but the aluminum has been upgraded from 80 gauge to a
    hundred gauge but of course it gets better what used to be MIG welded has
    now been TIG welded and the mid and rear seams are double bulkheads so these
    pontoons are strong from start to finish the RPT pontoons are back and they’re
    stronger than ever

    Sylvan Mirage 8522 Lounger

    January 8, 2020


    we just finished testing the Sylvan
    Mirage 85 22 it’s powered by a Yamaha f1 15 which isn’t a lot of power but this boat
    has twin tubes that have the RPT technology which stands for rapid
    planing technology and they’re shaped like little mini boat hulls so you
    really get a lot better performance out of your engine we got on plane almost
    instantly I was a guessing somewhere around 2 seconds but there was really no
    bow rides at all the technology really worked well and we got to 20 miles an
    hour in 5.6 seconds for the top speed of twenty eight point four miles an hour
    what’s really nice about this technology is it really helps you corner as well
    this boat has cable steering normally I recommend some sort of assisted steering
    at 90 horsepower and above but the Yamaha cables and this are working very
    well another thing you noticed that a modern
    cruise feed like this we had a little prop torque to the right but what you do
    is you just trim it up a little bit and all sudden it goes away and you track
    perfectly straight this boat actually does like a little bit of trim to it
    when you’re at higher speeds let’s head back to the dock and check up some of
    the features what’s nice is you got plenty of room
    back here big tubes are all the rage these days so you can take your tube and
    just put it right behind here and secure it with the cord and it still leaves
    your cockpit open one of the signature features of the 85 22 on this
    configuration is you actually have three separate conversation areas we have the
    rear loungers that are matching and you have the twin helm shares so the captain
    and co-pilot can basically talk about the people up front and in the back and
    have a nice conversation then you have twin loungers up front so three
    different zones you know one of the benefits of a compact helm is it really
    creates a lot of open space and yet everything here you know you’ve got the
    basic instruments like rpm, fuel and trim really that’s all you need and you have
    your accessory switches that are lighted and your horn and you know what’s nice
    about this model is the the throttle is positioned well it’s right within arm’s
    reach got your stereo controller right here so you get to keep your head unit
    for the stereo you know tucked away out of the weather
    you know when you have the family along and a pontoon there’s gonna be need for
    the necessary station as it were or just getting out of your wet swimsuits so
    Sylvan has this nice convenient changing room right here in a really nice innovation one of the
    problems with these things is how do you get it back in it’s like you
    gotta do this and you’re trying to tuck it and it just doesn’t work what they
    did is they just made it seed you can twist it and tuck it in the net here bring it down and snap it give great
    storage on the Sylvan unlike a lot of ones you have to take
    off the whole cushion remove it this one you open it up you can use two hands to
    stow all your stuff and then in the corner here we have just a
    flip up model like that it’s all roto-molded down here more information on the Sylvan Mirage
