I am considering getting a Mud Skipper 16 HP kit and am wondering if anyone has had any experience with one. I know it's made in China, but the price is low enough to fit my budget. I am mainly hunting areas with lots of weeds and around a foot of water that conventional outboards have trouble with. Don't need to go 25 mph. On another topic, Mangrove has a hydraulic trim feature. Looks like they took the cyclinder out of a floor jack and adapted it. How often do you need to adjust trim while running? Third question. I have seen mud motors with a plate over the prop. What is the purpose of this plate, anti cavitation? Does it help with top speed? Fourth and last question. What about prop size. Does bigger make better or do you reach a point of diminishing returns?
