Thanks HRG. I was thinking the same thing, but it sorta goes against the picture in the Merc manual I attached. Several places I read said to have the bottom of hull in line with the water intakes...

After a *long* search, I finally managed to find an outboard for my new tinny. The Merc was my second choice, but I'm not complaining with the shortage of outboards this season.

I tried to...

The dealer with the Lunds sells Honda and Mercury. I don't have a problem with either, but both are quite heavy in these HP ratings. The Yamaha F25 is crazy light because it's a two cylinder, and...

Went and looked at both today. The SSV-16 looks huge side by side with the SSV-14. I'm sure the 14' would be fine. It looks like the outboard may be the real problem. I went to the Suzuki Marine...

I agree with Waxy. I try not to take mine down gravel. But my favorite lake trout waters necessitate a 25mile trip down a gravel road (at 15mph :)). I have a custom cover and stone guard. I still...

I'd try them wherever the other adult doesn't sit. I think the front is ideal and more out of the way (I think those middle benches are more valuable stow space). But as Bob mentions, you'll need...
