I just bought a 21.5 ft walkaround equipped with a 3.0 I/O mercruiser but also has a mount for a kicker motor. Interested to see your guys opinion on if it's worth spending the money to get a kicker motor or just troll with the big motor. All feedback is appreciated!

I had a 3.0 , had to use bags most times , kicker saves fuel and wear and tear on main , I now have a 21' Trophy with 150 merc and Yamaha T8 kicker , doubt I'll ever buy another I/O ,

I'm with wave warrior here. I had a 19 foot Princecraft with a 3.0 I/O and I had to drag a bucket to slow it below 3 mph. I now have a four stroke outboard....I'll never go back. If you want to save the money dragging a trolling sock or buckets will slow it up just fine.

if you troll 20 days,the kiker is free how much you save in gass and vering the big ingene.
safety # 1,one ingene quit you run home on one engene.
buy kiker with troling controls,
you can program speed and remote control.
program
troll 1.5 mph 5 minutes then 2 mph 5 minutes,then 1.5 mph 5 minutes,the program do the work for you.
