Jonny-O, it was great to run around with you guys, thanks for making the trip down to Sterling on a cold wet and windy day, sorry for the bath when we got out in the really rough stuff (yes in 2-3' rollers you will get a bit wet in only a 44" bottom boat from the spray, but we never one put water on the bow). We ran yesterday in Winona and it was the opposite of Sterling, no shallow mud to be found, but miles and miles of thick flooded cattails with 2-5' of water and floating bogs in them. The 23 Cooperhead chewed right through them, even with a four and five man load. We only stuck the boat once on a hugh bog, but once we got the nose clear of it we motor right through 50-60 yards of 3-4' cattails with no trail to follow. We were also able to get in the timber and willows in 6" -12" of water at idle with 3-4 man loads, slide over deadfalls and stumps all day long. Same as with Sterling, everyone who ran the rig was amazed at the stablity, safety and load handling of this rig.
Look forward to talking with you soon and thanks for the review.
