My dad was looking at this boat/motor combo. Does anyone have any info/experience on this boat or motor? Anything to watch out for?

I did a search for this boat and it looks pretty nice. However, I ran across two different pics, one for a Bass Tracker style bass boat, the other looked more like a muti-species deep V boat.

IMO, a 50hp is a little small for this rig, especially if it is the deep V style boat. A 75hp would be just about right.

What is the max hp rating on the boat?

It looks more like a Lund Explorer than a deep v...

How long is it? I'm guessing 17'... If so, a 50 hp motor is going to be working hard, but it'll push the boat.

Those are good questions. I was hoping it was a deep V model, but I haven't seen it yet. My friend who is a Marine Repair Teacher at the local Tech School said the the four strokes in that

size class seem to have carburator issues with ethanol and water so a water separating fuel filter is a must.

I don't know the Max HP of the boat - but for my Dad going fast is not an issue.

Thanks for the replies...

That is true, the other thing is that they seem to be a little fussier about gas quality... be sure to have him run fuel stabilizer if they boat is going to sit for a couple weeks.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
