At the helm, we found a GPS speedometer, tach, voltmeter and fuel gauges. The black soft-grip steering wheel connected us via the SeaStar Solutions hydraulic steering system to an Evinrude E-Tec 135 H.O. outboard. Splash fins on the nose cones of the two 25-inch pontoon logs knock down spray for a dry ride. The 135 hp Evinrude E-Tec outboard powered our boat to slightly over 34 mph, which seemed plenty spry given a full tank of fuel and 450 pounds of crew on board. Also, remember that this boat is all about relaxing, and that’s what family and friends will remember most after spending an enjoyable and entertaining day on the lake aboard the Avalon 2385 Catalina RL.
