Go Devil Motor

Postby bass_hunter » Mon Dec 16, 2013 11:44 am

Looking at a used Go Devil long shaft with a 16 hp Briggs Vangard motor . Looks to be a 2000 model. In fair condition. Thinking about putting it on a 1648 lowe. Anyone have any experence with one.

Go with a surface drive vs long tail.

I've got a Beavertail long tail with a 13hp Honda. I run mtn rivers with it were speed isn't necessarily the best thing to have so it works for my application. If you are running in swamps, marsh and tidal water I'd invest in a surface drive.

I'm not looking for a mud motor. But this is what i have came across for $ 500.00. I do have blinds in skinny tidal waters that i have trouble getting to sometimes with the 25 hp outboard. And i don't need speed. I just want to get there.

I have a 27hp beavertail. It is SLOW, but it gets me to places no other motor could.

Yeah, it will put-putt up there and back. That's all that matters. If you have a long run, you may be better of with a push pole and the OB. None of the MM will carry a load like a prop motor. The hull isn't designed to be pushed by a MM and will probably run ok with just one person in the boat. With two people, dogs, decoys, etc, etc it will probably be a dog. But again it will get you in there.

A longtail and ice is a pain in the old backside , $500. will get you a 6 HP motor and about 3 tanks of gas that will keep you moving the whole season .

I have a Gator Tail 35, and it's a short shaft. Like everyone else said, lots of torque, not much speed. One thing that some folks don't understand is that they don't do well in sand. Thick black mud is where they excel, but sand is a no go, get out of the boat and push scenario. If none of that bothers you, you'll probably like it. I sure like mine and I'm thankful to have it.

Sand is hard on props. Props aren't cheap.
