Re: What is really possible with a 73 500 caddy DD

I have a buddy that runs a 14 foot jimmy white with a 500. It turns a 78 inch three blade H. Motor was built originally by bondsman on here. I am very impressed with the way it runs.

I usually park at least a hundred yards away or wherever I can find something tall enough to break up or conceal the boat. Then, I cover it with weeds and palm fronds if necessary. I have a small pirogue I built out of 1/4 inch plywood which fits in my airboat that I use to paddle over to the blind ...

Last two airtec kits we got, the alternator brackets broke at one of the welds. And one of them we had to machine the bushings down to get them to work. Not sayin It's their fault, just my personal experiences.
