    Those units are bulletproof. Evinrude commercial 55 with their earlier version of that jet was the go to for our military and I believe they are currently running the e-tec jet as well. Not shallow, but takes a beating that a prop can’t. The old 55’s are hard to find and EXPENSIVE because they are light, fast, and extremely durable. Bad *** motor.

    Thanks for the reinforcement Gaddy. This thing looks bulletproof. Bought a cherry picker today and going to swap out the mud buddy this weekend. Will see. Runs perfect out of the water—but they usually do. Water is the test. It was previously on a fish and game research boat.

    40 horse etec, tiller, electric and rope start. No power tilt. 2009

    They must be rare, I can't find one video with those things running in it.
    Interested to see how they handle the salad on the river.:tu

    I hear “Freedom, freedom, freedom,” calling from the river!
