My saltwater boat was stolen last year while I was deployed. The only thing recovered was my 6hp kicker from a local pawn shop (unfortunately no fuel tank or hose... Gotta rebuy those). It's a standard 20" shaft, standard prop, and has about an hour on it. I cannot sell it for its value since its all scratched up, and it's virtually new, but a few years old.
I've decided not to sell it, but use it as a primary power source for another boat. I'm an avid hunter, so I'm thinking a freighter type canoe. Looking at the big ones you folks talk about, I don't think 6 hp is going to do it. However, if there are smaller useful boats out there, I'm all ears.
Are there any mods to the engine I should do for shallow water work?
Thanks for your help.
