Decided on a kicker

Recommended Posts

Went with the 9.9 Suzuki to match my 175. I am very excited about my choice and what i have read about the recent improvements.

Thanks to everyone for their help. Now if we can just get rid of the hard water ...

Congrats, hope you like it as much as I like mine. Did you go tiller or remote? Is it on the port or starboard side?

I got the one with the remote.

They are putting it on the "Passenger" side. That is what they thought would be best ...

does that seem like the way to go? I have the ladder directly behind me (driver's side).

Yeah, my ladder is on the port, Passenger side. The motor got mounted behind me. Even that heavy ranger lists to the starboard, driver side, with just me in the boat. I am not very skinny though. Also the steering linkage hit my kicker when it was tilted all the way up. You should be good to go on the port side.

It would/will be better on the port side.

I've had my kickers on both sides of the boat. I run my kickers as tillers, on my current boat I had the kicker moved from the passenger side to the driver side so I would be closer to the console when running the motor. On the boat I have now I like it better on the driver side. On other boats I liked it better on the passenger side.

I think for a remote controlled kicker they are almost always on the passenger side.

    • heard from 2 folks who went the other day, their boat not good the other good!!  go figure..  same charter company...
    • Nice fish.  Heading out to Lake Michigan in 2-3 weeks.  Haven't decided exactly where yet.
    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • What port did you head out of Duff?
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time.
