Theres a SUCKER born every minute they say :rofl:

Your gonna love it, especially the first time you get seriously STUCK.

Joking aside, thats a steal on the price and the hull is awesome, the PD well thats another story. I'm not familiar enough with them to judge.

Thats a nice boat, congrats. When you pick it up give me a hollar and we can go get that thing muddy. If it is Chads he had it at mudfest and it did good in the mud. I have not been out in mine in a couple of weeks so I am over due for a ride. Does it have power trim?

I use the power trim all the time. Adding the power trim will be money well spent. :thumbsup:

Question for me or jim :huh:

Why Mudbuddy of course, I have owned and repaired all manuactures of mudmotors except the PD, only work on PD was to set the idle. One thing I do like about the PD is that they have a slid gear drive no belt that might break out in the marsh.

BTW my 23 Hypersport will walk the dog on that rig. :wink:
Proved that at mudfest.

Yep, power trim is well worth the investment. PD's is nothing more than an ATV wench and a pully, simple, cheap and effective. You can buy the wench and pully yourself and save some cabbage.

Caleb dont take my replies as being a jerk, I do come off that way sometimes but I'm really not :yes:
Your going to find that aMM will open up entirely new possibilities for you, some that will get you into trouble.
We've all been there, Hell I got stuck so bad one time I had to call Sea-Tow to help us out.

Your going to love it! :thumbsup:

If and when you need a repair give me shout, I'm like a preachers daughter "Cheap but Good" :rofl: Jim can vouch for me.

I have a 29 balanced hyper mudbuddy. It is a 2004. I bought it new and have a few more hours on it than the one you are getting. It has been a good motor with no major problems and I really like it. There is a learning curve when you start driveing these things and it is nice to have some help when you do end up some place that you should not be.

Winston has always done a good job for me. I would highly recommend him if you have any problems :thumbsup:

I was out on Lake Jesup today and the water is coming up but there is still enough mud along the edges to try your new rig out when your ready.
