Well I may have taken the 1st step in getting a new toy next year. I saw someone in IN who had a 16 foot long (Alumacraft ? Jon) w/ a Mud Motor on it. I almost (almost) bought it, actually would have just taken over the payments left but didn't. One reason that I didn't was that I found a company in PA that custom makes "Mud Motors" out of Honda engines. Thepre prices seem to be 1/2 of what Go Devil prices are. Does anyone know of places in Ohio that sell custom motors such as this? I also have some other questions such as size? I need nothing of much power, maybe something comparable to a 9.9 outboard. I'm not into speed at all. At first I was going to look at a 14 foot extra Jon but found a 16 footer that was 72 inches wide, which is about perfect. What would be the minimum size mud motor that would push that size of a Jon? I was thinking about a 15 hourse mud motor, but would one less than 10 hp work? Also how does a mud motor work in water say 1-2 feet w/ a gravel bottom? Thanks for ANY help you could provide.
