    Anyone ever put a mud motor on a 12' higbee style sneakbox? I have a gas outboard on it now but a small mud motor on it will open up more spots for me

    I use one on a 7 foot square nose hybrid. Does that count?

    Is that higbee a displacement type hull or does it flatten out. Displacement typically drawing more water might still limit your depth you can travel. The previous owner of my A.A. Blackjack use to run a long tail on it in Deal Isl. years ago . That hull is a planeing type and only draws about 4" loaded. He had installed a transom riser on it to allow motor to swing around and nest in boat . He managed pretty good in deal at that time but hull design is what allowed shallow travel.

    Yes it's a displacement hull . N I don't care if I move at 5 mph as long as I get there

    You might want to post this question on Duckboats.net . Lots of sneakbx owners on that site from jersey and north . Some of those fellas have probably tried it.
