Thanks Speed Willy

Post by g1moore1 » Wed May 29, 2013 7:00 am

:old_glory: Big thanks to Tom on my boat. I put this motor to the test on Saturday and she was basically point and go. Never got stuck anywhere i went, Ridge- straight up to the top, sticky green grass- powered right through to help pull a stuck boat out. Motor ran cool and smooth so now i just got to tune my hull some to fix the porpoise and I'm set. This motor makes my boat look a lot better too lol. I don't feel to bad after seeing how many boats were getting stuck and some of them were really nice and expensive looking. :rebel:

Yeah its rerouted. The way it was before was below the header before i put the mufflers back on and i ended up burning the casing off the teleflex :violent1: That was a quick-fix that i didn't address after putting the flex and mufflers back on. It's pulled down back to where it was in side the hull now. Thanks
