    Default 14HP Copperhead, Hudson Bay Freighter and Beaver Dams

    I just can't stop smiling. I have an amphibious moose assault vehicle now. Still learning to use it but it's great.

    that skinny creek that the beavers are dming up.....wish I could moose hunt that creek!. sometimes it's best to let passengers exit, and launch that canoe for all your're worth with a lightly loaded boat. You're then going places. great little clip!

    Yup..I got 1/3 of the way up with 800 pounds on board and hitting the thing at 6MPH. With 300 pounds aboard (Me and the battery) at 12MPH I figure I'd get 9/10ths. I'll try soon. 80 degrees F, is a strange time to be looking for moose!

    That's pretty funny. I am a bureaucratic a-hole from Whitehorse on weekdays and "Jim" pretty much nailed a rural Yukon point of view that isn't even that exaggerated. Unfortunately we sometimes deserve the drubbing. Dawson is part of my beat. One of the greatest towns in Canada.

    How efficient is that motor? I never really thought about adding a mudbuddy type motor to a canoe. Of course I am still searching for a canoe or jon boat.

    ok...It's not quite as fast as a regular outboard of the same HP but it has more torque and the 4 stroke engine is fuel efficient. Way better in shallow water of course.

    another plus of the 14 kohler, is the intake has two settings. One is for hot weather, and the other is for extremely cold weather. You can adjust simply by turning the top filter shroud to the "snowflake symbol". the cold weather setting takes preheated air from the fan driven cooling system. After boating through horrible weather with snow, and my carb n filter icing up due to sucking snow non-stop, this idea by Kohler is genius.
