First, let me say hello, I'm new here and am glad there is such a resource available. Now to my issue: I have a '76 AMF/Crestliner with a 140 HP Merc that loves to turn left. I have to fight the hell out of it to get it to run straight and when I do, it lysts badly. I've tried adjusting the anode and the stabilizers on my whale tale, but to no avail. I am considering trying to run it without the whale tale, but I think that's why I tried the whale tale in the first place (long story so assume it does the same thing without the whale tale on it.). Furthermore, I'd love to put this on Erie and troll for eyes, but the darn thing idles at 4.2 mph. I'm considering buying a trolling motor (it does have a trolling motor mount on it), but I'm on a budget. So two part question here....1) What size trolling motor should I need...electric or gas, and 2) Would a Drift Sock do the trick? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
