I am getting ready to purchase a Mud Buddy HD lite surface drive motor for my HB Freighter.
I know the owner of the Mud Buddy HD lite 18 HP in Fairbanks. He has nothing but good things to say about the 18.
I also know that there are two folks here that have the 23 HP. I am trying to decide between the two. If you are the owner of a 23 or know who is, can you have them reply with a report on how they like the 23.
There is no significant weight difference.
I know- more hp is better- but with a canoe maybe not.
Plus, the 23 is much more expensive.
