    Default Kicker Motor

    How do you tell which size kicker motor you need? I have a 1860 Alweld and want something encase the big motor goes down and to troll.
    Thanks,
    Tim

    I had a 21 foot Hewescraft with a 9.9 4-stroke (high thrust). Worked great on both counts. Was a little slow if traveling against the tide but should be ok on an 18 footer.

    Default 4-stroke

    I use a 15hp honda 4-stroke and it just about gets it on step. It will push my boat 7.5 mph and is great for trolling
