Re: Black Mud just how bad is it !!!!!!!!!

I know this much about black mud...If you see it and try to avoid it make your mind up real quick dont wait till the last minute and try to slide out away from it because chances are you may catch the end of it with the side of the hull and may end up flipping the boat. Just keep a good eye out for ...

Re: question for guys from the glades

Chester Is'nt that the old man who had that little blue race style boat called "blew By You" or however it was spelled out. I remember the seat on that thing was mounted really low to the bottom of the hull basically sitting on the stringers. I remember thinking that was the coolest thing i've ever ...

Re: What is your "ideal" motor?

My wish list would be a 12-13'x7' Hammant with a punched out chevy zz572 bb with a 78-80" R blade.

Or an 11'x7' Davis or Taylor hull with an angle valve 0360 with a 5 blade warp drive.

Re: big decisions!! 0470 or 350?

I'm with everyone else on the 0470 choice ! now if you were'nt concerned about running dry and being loaded down then I would say a dd-350 would be fine but with what you want to do then I would definately choose the 0470 over the dd-350 any day of the week...I would run the 0470 for a while and sav...

Re: 350 dd

I would suggest that if you want to stay with a dd setup on the hull you have I would try and sell the 350 and try and find a gm 500 out of a caddy. That would be the only dd setup on a hull that big that I would run and if you set it up fairly light and have the right prop you should be able to run...
