how many guys have or are thinking of trading in your larger hp motor for a 9.9? i think im going to. i know i wont have the speed, but its mainly a fishing boat, 2002 tracker pro team 175 with a 40hp now. it light aluminum and ive seen several boats just like mine with the 9.9hp on them. i will only buy a 4 stroke though. im also buying a 55 lb thrust mk trolling motor and going down from a 2 battery 12 volt system to a 1 battery 12 volt system for even lighter weight. just thinking of the future in case gas gets out of reach. im also buying a small kay-noe from dicks sporting goods 11'9" long and 32.5 in wide weighs 43lbs also will hold 475lbs.this will be my alone boat. to throw in back of truck when im alone for river or lake fishing. these are my ideas as to combat high prices. i will spend now to save later. whats everyone else doing??
