Thats what I used to do - buy a second hood and camo it.... except the hoods only cost $50 bucks then, this one probably is $699 or more. I may be able to get one at cost...or I already have a camo cover my son gave me a few years ago, except my engine was camo'ed out already!

camo wrap. You can peel it off if you ever need to sell the motor.

Pete- That's one of them fancy new fangled 4 strokes. I saw your Suzuki in the NJ Sale section, wondered what you were replacing it with. I would run a camo motor cover. Especially since it is brandy new. If you aren't hunting directly out of the boat most of the time, can't see why it would hurt.

ohhhh ahhhh so new and shiney! Pete my outboard is a white '84 johnson and I am still hesitant to paint it! Part of me feels like a motor loses its identity when It gets covered in paint. I don't know I guess I am weird! I sling mud and burlap over mine. I think a camo cover should do you just fine...especially if you are not gunning out of it much. If the cover has grass loops you can always grass it up when you hunt from the boat.

This is an excerpt from a book Im writing called "Serious Hunter"

Chapter 3: Covers: Nothing sceams serious hunter like a ragged up cover matted up in a block of ice on the floor of the boat when your trying to get moving. Additionally, if your a fair weather hunter and like to haul ass down the bay, nothing screams serious hunter like the fvcking cover blowing out of the boat. Most serious hunters carry as much additional sh1t in the boat as possible. Its acceptable to have up to 27 misc items that are not needed. In this catagory we include - covers, blankets, mojos, things on sticks, buckets, pots, pans, kitchen sinks, and calculators.

Chapter 4 - Advantages of covers: Ever wish you knew more about your outboard? Its a proven fact that most serious hunters have far more knowledge of the motor beacause covers are know to snag electric wires, pull safety clips, knock the gears shifters, and annoy the hunter to the point where he curses at the cover. Further more, the serious hunter has to have a longer shot in the event of a cripple being knocked down. The serious hunter employs his skills of removing cover and stowing it prior to dispatching a cripple, adding only a few seconds to the amount of time he must remove gloves during a blizzard.

Chapter 5 - Identifying the novice. A novice hunter is easily identified by his calmness about organization and lack of extra sh1t. Although he appears to pack only whats needed, the novice has failed to realize the importance of clutter. The novice has yet to master the 'snafu' also know as a 'fvck up' or to some 'the cormorrant". Once a few of the experiences are handled properly the novice can take on difficult projects like covers, mojos, and blinds built illegally out of pallets and other items picked from the garbage.

Paint it Camo,

get a decal shop to make new black decals if you need decals but they do make it "professional" looking. Lost

FFT wins again! That camo wrap is they way to go. I should probably paint it and be done with it but I don't know if I can do it to a new motor. Maybe I'll just wait til I get the first scratch on it :lol3:

Since you asked for feedback, JGun said:

Bunch of pansy ass puddle duck hunters! :no:

Paint it up!!! Look how much you spent on everything else that's camo. Why even have a camo boat, shotgun or coat if your not going to paint the motor????


You asked for it!!! Lost

I agree! I just wanted to see who's who. When you been around this long you have ulterior motives when you ask questions. Never take anything at face value :grooving:

CORRECT ANSWER: IT'S A DUCK BOAT MOTOR,CAMO IS MY FAVORITE COLOR

No it is dedicated to this boat and we sold this a couple years ago and replaced it with a Lowe 16x48 with a home made longtail 14 hp. Lost

:thumbsup: did you plan on hunting hippie ducks? :biggrin:

How well does that 14hp push your boat?

I have my longtail in a bunch of pieces right now. Need to pick up new bushings and seals then make a few modifications to the frame, paint then put it back together. Bought it last wednesday and had it in pieces by friday :biggrin: I can't let anything be the way it is.
