Trolling motor and engine

bass boat motor

Keeping with what I had on many of my first boats, I added a 36-volt MotorGuide Tour Pro trolling motor with Pinpoint GPS and cable steer. For a little bling, I went with the DD26 Fishing Foot Pad.

The engine is a lightly used, old-school 150-horsepower Mariner Magnum with oil injection and a four-blade Mercury prop. This boat is just a little over 18 feet long and the four-blade allows it to jump on plane and hold without much ventilation or chine walking at intermediate speeds.
