Interesting new outboard concept.

Recommended Posts

This outfit, pro drive shallow water outboards, has a new twist on an old idea...mud motors that look like outboards. I watched the video of them going through some back-woods hill billy swamp and that motor was getting the crap beat out of it. I'm curious on how loud the motor really is. The video I watched muffles the sound. Also, there is a pretty impressive rooster tail that has the potential of soaking anyone following you... grin.gif It has possibilities though. Nav

ps. One other thought, I think I've seen something like this before...only it was on the bugs bunny/road runner show and I think it was an egg beater.

Trip was good!! Anytime you can deliver two boats to MN in December, life is good.

BTW, I was looking for your return call...We had dinner at the River Inn, my treat.

Another manufacturers sight that has a motor that I believe is similar to the one that you describe is <no unauthorized weblinks>. The motor is called a Gator Tail. This is a Minnesota company out of Avon, MN I believe.

I didn't know Dick and the boyz had a OB style motor. I tried the link but it's not working. For sure check out Beaver Tail.

A guy put in a boat with a beaver tail last year here and it didn't work very well. Pretty good size boat and he hit lotsa rock and gravel with the prop. Maybe he was new at it. not sure.

Every rig has its limits. I've fished with the Beaver Tail boyz and they have little trouble getting where the fish are. On the plus side, Beaver Tail is less $$$ than some of the larger jet rigs (RiverPro)and will chew thru weeds with ease. On the down side, they not quite as comfortable to operate and tend to be on the slow side.

Dick Fisher is good friend of mine and just happens to own a HiPro....
