Grumman Sportboat Longtail?

Postby glenfish » Mon Jun 30, 2014 3:40 am

I just picked up a Grumman Sportboat. Owned one for years when I hunted in Wisconsin. Would like to put a long tail motor on it to hunt down in the everglades. Has anyone put a long tail on this boat. Otherwise will probably run a 8hp outboard but that won't get me where I would like to hunt.
thanks

I think it would work. Not very well because mud motors are made for flat bottoms, but you'd move. Wouldn't win any races though.

Guy on another forum runs what you're talking about and said it works fine. Just Google Grumman Sportboat and you'll see an image of it.

I have a GSB with an 8 HP Merc. No experience with a mm but I have seen others with them in my area for years so they must work well.

I have a 6.5 hp GDLT which I run on a 12' Springbok aluminum or a 15'4" Gheenoe Hisider. Works fine on both so I think a GSB would be OK too.

Thanks for the feedback. I am in the early stages of the project!
