    I invested in a different boat motor also. I am going up to a 25 horse Mariner from my 9.9 Evinrude on my 16" Ouchita Jon boat. I figure it should be 3 times faster. I am going to keep my 9.9 for local lakes that have a boat motor size limit and some river fishing. I am going to try to get mine mounted today and may take it for a spin but I probably won't fish until it warms up next week.
