    Hey guys,

    I think I am going to go ahead and get a momarsh fatback. I need a boat I can handle on my own other than my big boat, which really requires a crew. I am thinking of ordering the momarsh fatback...but can't decide whether to power it with a trolling motor or the 6.5 hp longtail. Any thoughts? My biggest concern is if I can move it, put it in my truck, etc...alone.

    Mike

    How far do you plan on running away from the launch? Any current where you hunt? The longtail will be cumbersome to unmount and put in the truck each time IMO, but you'd like the HP for scooting around.

    I have a four rivers refuge runner with a trolling motor but really want a mudmotor. The weight of the trolling motor and battery exceed that of most mini motors and then there's the limited use of the trolling motor.
