Re: SK14 Outboard For Back Country

Love my 5 hp tohatsu propane outboard, but don't see it for super skinny water. Also love my minn kota spotlock troll motor which can run super skinny but only 2 to 3 mph. You can do either or or both.

Re: NC SK14

Your not frustrated, you're just resting the plywood! I rested mine several times too 8) I do remember one day having a bit of breakthru when I pressed the bottom down hard against the table.

Re: NC SK14

Those cords across the top side panels constrict things. I'd take 'em off and start fooling with it. The side and bottom panels need to be able to float and find a fair curve.

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

I'm sure two cost more than one. Significantly better manuverability cost more than white knuckles at the dock too. On the GT27 I'd like two if I could manage it. I'd run 'em off independent fuel tanks too.
