In my humble opinion you better be looking at a big horsepower car motor if you are gonna be hauling 800 lbs of meat around, plus all the other stuff you will be needing. :thumbleft: :rebel:

Sorta like what Deano already told in your other post ..... SEARCH... Read .... Learn .... then begin to form your own opinions before you start asking such Ford vs. Chevy type questions....

Good Luck

Oh hell, that's easy as pie, a turbo ECOtec.
Research shows an early example hauling 7 men on dry ground,
on a heavy ass hull.
May the discussion begin.

all depends on what you want performance wise,if your running the grass or the hill, how much you want to spend, how many people you want to haul around, how close you are to a supply of av gas..

You will find everyone will tell you the best motor is what they Own. In my opinion the very best thing to do is buy a few 12 packs and ask people who own a motor you may consider if you could bum a ride. Then you will find out personally out the truth. There are so many people claiming or selling stuff that just aint what the say it is. I would make your decision for your self and based on personal experience.

Oh ya my own standard don't listen to what they say go by the how much prop they are swinging! You may have a crapy power plant and a great hull combo and get miss information or a crapy hull and a great power plant an get miss information. But if you are swinging a big prop with lots of pitch then that will be a good power plant to haul all the weight and people you are considering.
THE PROOF IS IN THE PROP!

Thunder, that's good advice.
On that note, I would like you to drive 'ONEBFC's Turbo ECOTEC boat.
He will be back in town this summer, and I can arrange for him to pick
you up in your back yard. Your promotion of the LS series in the face of adversity,
mirrors the ECOTEC skepticism.

just remember a Toyota 22re can turn 54" boggers with a 588 gear, so don't always go but the pitch of a prop. Its better to ride different boats and decide to build the set up YOU like, both have pros and cons and both can be made to work for you. Always choose what makes you happy.
