Any ideas on how to mount a kicker motor to my boat?

So it looks like it's possible but I'm gonna need to get creative with something custom. Those tilting brackets are interesting If I could find one long enough to clear the pods. I'll probably need to have an extension made that uses the pod for support. I would also like to tie it to the big motor ...

Any ideas on how to mount a kicker motor to my boat?

I want to mount a small gas kicker outboard to the back of my boat. As you can see I have very little space due to the flotation pods. Any Ideas on how this could be done?

Lowe Shallow Water Series Boats?

Is it just me or does that picture look like it sits rather funny in the water? The back looks real low and the front 1/3 of the boat is out of the water. Almost like it's off plane but the boat isn't moving. Shallow water boats should sit relatively flat so the ass end doesn't hit bottom. It's like...

This is how we roll! Awesome aerial jet boat footage!

GoPro's and Jet-boats do go well together. That's a good idea with that super long pole. I've watch a lot of jet-boat videos and that's the first one I've ever seen like that. I'd like to see if something similar could be done with a kite, which is another version of a red neck drone.

New Jet Pilot with new Jet boat

I got the same boat with same motor. Only configured quite a bit differently. That's the cool thing about SeaArk, every boat can be customized to the nth degree. Mine's probably heavier than yours and I can do 30mph with 4 people, tracked on GPS. Mine is currently frozen to the trailer on the side o...

Impellers: Aluminum vs. Stainless

When my aluminum impeller wears out I will be replacing it with a stainless one. They do cost more but they are vastly superior in the wear department. The increased strength of stainless over aluminum allows the blades to be thinner too. The Yamaha 150/110's come stock with stainless.

Looking for a boat similar to the Lund Alaskan 1800 DC

I think the Starcraft Freedom 180 can be had with the floor all 1 level.

Do you use the kill switch cord?

When I was young and stupid I never even considered it. Now that I'm old and wise :LOL2: , I always use it, just like a seat belt in the car. I always wear an inflatable PFD too, which I never used to do. Bad stuff always happens when you least expect it. As I always say, "Safety First Dammit!"

Just a question regarding Jets vs protected props

The previous posters are correct. Jet boats are for going into the shallows and running over water hazards without damaging your motor/lower unit. The covered prop thing is actually in use already. The U.S. military actually buys outboards from Evinrude with a encased prop for use on Zodiac type boa...

I got my full camper enclosure done.

I love the thing. When I bought it, the head mechanic at the marina said, "I hope you know you bought yourself a tank." I said, "Good, I have a tendency to run stuff over a lot."

I got my full camper enclosure done.

The center windows on each side have upside down smilies with screens for ventilation. I'm not too worried about the gas mileage. For some reason, putting gas in a boat is a lot less painful than into a truck or SUV.

Re bunking my trailer, have some questions

I'd say flat for the same reasons as everyone else, plus you get your boat about 1-1/2" closer to the water when launching in shallow water.

Yeah, it's a 115/80. I tried to get the 150/105 put on there but SeaArk absolutely refused. Kinda hard to believe, the boat is 20' long and 8' wide after all.
