    Probably wouldn't hurt, but that's the problem with all the rules for the fools. They won't ever be 'undone'. Hopefully they realize now if they don't stop acting like idiots, they are going to continue to tighten the noose.

    Nobody needs a 50hp down there anyways. :)

    I agree the "need" may not be there at BM, but it would be nice to have one rig that would work best for all rivers, lakes, WMA's, NWR's, etc. around the state.

    Years ago, I saw a boat at BM with three grown men sitting side by side on a bench seat with a factory console with a big Mercury with factory twin ram T&T. Much bigger than 25 hp. And it didn't seem to bother the guys running 9.9's, 15's, or 25's...and I don't recall ever hearing of them "wrecking or killing anyone."

    It does suck to have to have 2 rigs. My 50HP boat will go just as slow at idle speed as my 9.9 boat.

    Can't help you there. I use a 15' with a 25 everywhere, only boat I own, even on the mighty Arkansas when the world freezes over. And that's an upgrade to the 14'/15hp I used to use. :tu

    They pretty much have removed it. All you need is a sticker with a 25 serial number. A fella down south prints them every day. :l

    So would the bottom fall out of the mega market if they lifted the 25 hp restriction?
