New Rig!!!

Postby georgiaboy83 » Mon Nov 11, 2013 6:45 pm

I've been wanting to sale my old riveted Duracraft for a few years, just never really put allot into selling it until I ran across this Gator Trax. It belonged to a friend of my grandpa's, boat & trailer is an 08' with 24 hours on it.

Then I was searching for a motor when I found a 20hp go-devil LT. Hung it on the boat last week and took it for a test drive.

The results...
With me (185) and my hunting partner (160) along with a deep cycle marine battery (20lbs) & a 6 gallon fuel tank about half full (15lbs) we ran 18-19 all day, in about 6-8ft of water. It ran solid 20 with me by myself.

Ran it again today....
Me (185) and my buddy (215) in some shallow water/mud and we hit 23 mph!

Impressed for a LT would be an understatement!!! This LT is a BEAST!

(This pictures shows the old scavenger motor that was on it when I bought it)
