    Old Thread, I know.

    I was wondering what the largest motor anyone has used on their pro pioneer was. I know it says 5 hp max, but I have 9.9 that would work really well... I would like to go upstream a slow moving shallow river.

    I also have a air cooled 5 hp motor and I'm not sure if it would have the power or sustainability to get me 12-15 miles up a slow moving river.

    Anyone tried a 6.5 hp Go Devil on their Pro Pioneer?
