Hello all! I have a 13x5 V-hull tin boat and I was wanting to know where I could find a good small outboard for it. My dad and I plan to put decks on it and my 55 lb thrust trolling motor is running out of battery too quickly to go far. What are y’alls recommendations on where I can find a quality, inexpensive outboard? I live in the Dallas area. Thanks!

Quality AND inexpensive.. Might get lucky and find something used. Call around,, maybe checked the paper.. I like having a warranty.

People just can't understand that in the marine world, cheap and quality just don't work well together. Personally, i can't afford to buy cheap stuff.

What battery and size are you using thats running you short. I run a 31 series on a 19 ft and have run it two hard days without charging.
