I have a 12' Polar Kraft and have a 6hp Johnson on it now. It is a short shaft and does the job. As I add more weight I think I'll need a little more hp. My Polar Kraft is a 1257 and is a little heavy.

I am in SW Florida and there are a ton of jon boats that are for sale, very reasonable. I paid 150 for a 12' Polar Kraft 1257 and found a 16' trailer a week later for 80. If somebody is patient and does not mind a drive the boats are here. Tampa and the surrounding area is good also.
Jim is this something that you guys do every year. I got diagnosed with diabetes last month and have lost 21 pounds since. If you guys start up again in January I would sure be interested. take care
Does anyone have experience with spark plugs as far as which is better Champion NGK or Bosch for a small hp motor. I use Bosch in all my stuff around the house (lawn equipment and pressure washers). I will be using the motor in mostly salt water if that makes a difference. thanks
Thanks for the help. I found the freeze plug last night. It was very well hidden. Anyhow the top number is J6RCRM and the bottom number is E5874267. Does this mean it could be a 1987? On the Johnson parts website it does not have this model number but a model number which is J6CRUD or J6RLCUD. Shoul...
Still can't find a serial number and cannot find the frost plug. The only thing I noticed is on the mount for a transom is 10 13 82. I am guessing it is at least a 1982 but don't know if Johnson just made a bunch of the brackets for later use on the small motors. I'll keep looking so I can at least ...
Hey guys. I just got home after picking up a 6 hp Johnson Seahorse for very cheap. A few questions, if I may. 1. What is a safe way to clean the inner housing, can I use a mild engine cleaner as long as I keep it away from the coil? 2. When we started it the water was flowing very lightly from the p...
Hey fellas just wondering if anyone has experience with putting a bimini top on a jon boat. I have a Polar Kraft 1257 and can't find a bimini top on line that will just bolt on. Don't have access to a metal shop where I can build a frame and then make a top. If anyone has a suggestion for an online ...
How do you think the 4 cycle air cooled would do in salt water. I am in Florida and fish the mangroves and flats. I am interested in the Eska conversion though. Did someone say there were other people doing the conversions?
