MY SON KILLED A SMALL DOE FOR HIS FIRST DEER LAST YEAR AND TOLD ME HE WANTED TO HOLD OUT FOR A BUCK THIS YEAR. AFTER SEEING A BUNCH OF DOES AND SMALL BUCKS THAT WERE OUT OF HIS RANGE LOOK WHAT POPPED OUT TO VISIT. AFTER MAKING A GREAT SHOT THERE WERE PLENTY OF HIGH FIVES AND HUGS AND A SLAP ON THE BACK THAT NEARLY KNOCKED HIM OUT OF THE STAND. LOL. BY FAR THE BEST HUNTING TRIP EVER OF MY CAREER. NOTHING BETTER............

Just ordered a 17x5 semi-vee Hanko hull. Was looking for info on troll motor size. Would a 12 volt 55 pound thrust be large enought or should I go up to the 24 volt 70 pound thrust? Any thoughts?

My buddy loves his motor. Says it run about 42mph or so {always somebody faster}. It is great on gas as he runs the bay a great deal on very little fuel. About 200 hours on his so far with no trouble. May have just killed it for him with that commect. LOL.

Going to go with the 115 Optimax. Have a buddy who has the same boat you ordered with the 90 Optimax and loves it. Great on gas...........
