    Default Modified boat

    Well season not here yet, so I decided to prepare during offseason.
    Added pod to the back of the boat..

    As long as you don't ever plan on using a conventional outboard or a surface drive that should be great. Have to ask what's up with the strap.

    No silver streak did it all
    I just told them what I was thinking and Ben put his input in and there you have it. He said 450 extra now.
    Perfect since motor little bigger for that boat..

    Have you ran the boat much since the addition? If so have you noticed any difference in performance or floatation?

    Let us know how she does when you get it on the water. I have been thinking about something similar for my boat. Thanks

    Put it in water and noticed back end sits up higher like it should.
    Runs great. No effect on boat.
    Best thing I've done to the boat!

    Thanks for the update... I was curious if you were still getting the same speeds you were prior. I once read on another forum that it effected the boats performance. Im glad to hear it worked out for you.

    I like your add on. Now that you have had a chance to use it a little more, do you still like it?
