    30% reduction in power. Would make my 40 more like a 25. Nope.
    Would be cool though. Maybe I'll just carry some oars.

    Sweet picture Dibs! I haven't seen that one, but I know exactly where it is. Yea the old girl had some serious river miles on her. We counted the rivers that boat has been on (or at least tried to remember them all and it is in the serious double digits. We sold our skiff in the Keys, some moron offered us double what we paid for her. Now I too have skiff aspirations! I will keep an eye out for the Hog in its new shiny glory next summer!

    I'm looking for a pram 8-10ft. Loading the old yellowstone drifter solo is a challenge.
