So being that it's 20 mile river, it doesn't count. I only do a couple trips down there to dip net hooligan, but they aint runnin yet so we decided to head up the right fork of 20 mile. We ran out of daylight around 11:00 PM so had to turn back. On the way back down, I did see a few hooligan surfacing. The motor now has over 130 hrs. of use, and no new parts. Still running strong. Canoes are kind of slow and boring for some folks, so I decided to do some full throttle 25 mph full-tilt turns. You aint trying unless the gunwale touches the water!
On the way up rivah, we had Dog (110 lbs), two guns ammo and scoped (14 lbs), 12 gallons of gas(80 lbs), my neighbor Lucas (200 lbs), myself (230 lbs), two packs (40 lbs), and two 16 ft. dip nets (10 lbs). All the weight combined probably put us around 740-780 lbs or so. With this load we saw 14-15 mph going up river during the out-going tide. Coming back down, we'd run 18-20 mph. Enjoy and thanks for watchin!
