Been Crawfishing just about everyday and my motor started giving me troubles. Called a friend whose gf works for a marine place in lake Charles and got a good price on a new motor. Went got it mounted and setup today and will put her to work tomorrow. Ran her open for a minute and could do 40mph. Image

It will top out very fast, but it's way to risky as its not my thing. On the other hand it will jump on plane and move out with any load I put in it which is most important to me.
