Post Gator Tail 1854 Gator Tail Modified Big Block 25
MM Brand: Gator Tail
Horsepower:Big Block 25
Boat Brand:Gator Tail
Boat Size:1854 Extreme Mod V
Boat Layout: Hunt deck, removable rear deck, 8 foot welded in rod box, 13 gallon fuel tank(front), two size 27 batteries (front), Minn kota ultrex 80, onix 8, tested with me 225 and a buddy 225.

Comments:heads, cam, 35 stock carb, rapid prop worked by baggy, Q exhaust, motor work performed by Delta. Very pleased so far. Delta was excellent to work with. Calen and Jamie run a good business. This is my first mud boat. We used a phone app for speeds so it might not be completely accurate. I'll add to the post as I get more tiller time.

Going to run it again tomorrow. Need to get it on the water and calibrate the trolling motor. Most likely I'll be by myself so we'll see what kinda speeds I get deep and shallow.

Delta usually gives you a copy of the Dyno results. What horsepower is your BB25 now? Your speeds and load carrying numbers are impressive. I would love to see how it does with one more guy to see if the motor still carries the really big loads at 26-27. We're surrounded by 25 hp limits here and it would open up new hunting areas with your motor on a 1854 vs the 1748 max Gatortail used to recommend which is a little small for use on the bays we run.

They did not dyno it. Jamie said it should be around 41 horsepower and may pick up a couple more when it gets broke in. It may be a while before I have more weight in the boat. Usually only two of us this time of year.
