I have an almost identical setup- C2 Endura 55lb with a custom mount on a 14.5 ft canoe- minus the outrigger and the extra battery which I plan to get soon.

If you want a bit extra speed check out Kipawa aftermarket props. http://www.kipawapro...propellers.htmlStock MK trolling motor props are built with a shallow angle for slowly shifting around full size boats at <1mph not cruising small boats at >4mph at which point they start to drag more than they propel.


So you're recommending the aftermarket kip prop?

This is my boat, 1999 Tracker  Pro Angler Deep V16, Come with a 40hp Mercury Force and a 9.8B Nissan. When I first got it in January it came with the Tracker vinyl stickers and trim but over 15 years of deck rub and wear I  made some changes; removed the vinyl, wet sanded the paint, buffed and polished,  rhino lined the rail, made my own rub rail. This winter Im going to re due the deck, carpet (going Charcoal gray) , add storage, deck LED lights and hopefully next year re-power to a Nissan or Evenrude 60-70hp

For the rich there is therapy.   For the rest of us there is fishing.

I will be upgrading to my first boat with an outboard.  It is a Skeeter 1992 SS-140D with 115HP Mercury.  75lbTrolling motor.  No more puddle jumping for me!

Looks clean for a 25yo boat


Is "basstiality" the same as sleeping with the fishes?

Took her out for the first time this morning.  Drove well.  I have never had an outboard before so I do not know quite what to expect.  GPS had her at 35 MPH with 2 adults.  Never really sure what to expect, but seems to be fast enough for what I need it for.

Don't have any of it recent. This is it when I bought it earlier this spring. Previous owner kind of neglected it, so I have spent a lot of time (and cash) working on it, but I've done all the work myself and its running perfectly now. I only paid a grand for it, so I can't really complain.

I am going to have to install some new fish finders though and plan on reflooring, recarpeting and adding a bait well during the colder months this winter. The current fish finders are Humminbird Piranha Max 10s which are probably older than I am. I am planning on installing Garmin Echo 551 DVs. I also already installed the green LED lights to attract bait fish and night.. and they work amazingly.

It's a 1990 Javelin 378 FS with a 1979 Johnson 140 hp v4. In fairly good shape, two working live wells stern and bow. Seats 5 but that would be rather crowded. I plan on removing the center seat in the rear and turning the area it's mounted over into a baitwell as well as making a step for the aft fishing platform.
