Longtail on a DH?

Postby AJCsurf » Wed May 08, 2013 2:34 pm

Hey All-
The boards seem dead! hopefully someone will chime in with a picture or more info. Anyone ever throw a Longtail on a DH? Obviously it would be for the more "flat bottom" and not the tapered up in the rear version...

anyone?

I bought my DH last season with a 12hp mud motor, i sold it and put a 24hp Beavertail on it, seams to push the boat great, ive only had it out once last season just to put out some wood duck huts and only ran it at 1/2 throttle. I added an aluminum plate to rear transom this summer even though is was probably fine but we'll see how she rips this duck season wide open. I would seem to think a 25hp outboard would put more stress on the transom than a 24hp Longtail but i really dunno, guess ill find out the hard way, LOL.
