Welcome! Need support, you got it. Or share you ideas and experiences.
I have just purchased a small 12' jon boat and am in need of a 4 to 7 hp. outboard motor. I have a trolling motor that works great in fresh water , but I do occasional tidal water fishing and need a motor I can put in salt water. If anyone has a motor for sale or any recomendations for my finding one , I would be greatly appreciative and interested. If so e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
I have the same size boat. I only use it in freshwater though. But I have a 3 hp gamefisher that pushes it pretty fast since the boat is light. I was thinking about getting a 5 Hp Honda fourstroke which is probably alot more quiet than mine.
Is your 3 hp outboard a 1 or 2 cylinder unit? It seems these days all outboards made are 1 cylinder to about 6 hp except the venerable Johnson 4 hp. The new 4 strokes sure are quiet and even with 1 cylinder quite smooth running. The only negative (besides price) is the weight, Honda 5 hp is about 60lbs., your gamefisher is probably under 30...
