When you can run really thin, navigating gets pretty easy. If there’s a ripple on the water it’s deep enough to go. Just go around the oil slick shoal water.

I carry a piece of grounding rod to just bash the shell into pieces and out it comes.


do you have a pic of this setup?? you piqued my curiosity!

I'll have to tilt up the motor for a closeup.
Just taking out the grate and pulling the useless reverse gate out makes the biggest difference.

I would put a jet foot on that boat and use it for river running and Nachione...then I would get a pro-v style boat with a hydraulic lift installed, for the lakes you normally fish... freak
