    That is not encouraging. Can you share any details on the damages/repairs?

    Well here's an update own my raft. It's the Gary King 8'10" tender and I used a short shaft 2.5 HP Zuke on it and it worked well. I had to replace the plastic motor mount with a shorter one to get the water intake into the water enough, but it pushed my raft well. Heck I could even get on step easily. But I am going to be looking for a long shaft Suzuki this winter. It sure doesn't take much motor to push these light rafts. Very stable in the water as well.

    How do you think a 7'-10" will do with oars? I probably won't buy a motor for it until next year.

    They do fine, but you don't want to anchor too far off shore or get caught in a skookumchuck.
