Post Advice on new backwater inc longtail
Getting ready to buy backwater glider kit. Was gonna put a 22 predator on it but thinking I may go with a 20 hp bc 1 lake I hunt in just went to 20 max. When I talked to Jake at backwater he said I should expect 18-20 mph on my rig with the 22. Will a 20 slow me down considerably or will it be hardly noticeable? Would be going on a 1544 g3 boat

I doubt you’d notice 2 hp but I don’t think predator makes a 20 so it’s going to cost you more for a Honda or b&s 20.

Step one, take stickers off.
Step two, rattle can camo
Step three, say it's a 20

Step Four, watch green jeans give you a ticket cause they can look at a serial number and tell what hp it is...

Grind that bitch off. I hunt a 25hp restriction lake and some dumbass kids are out there with a 35 mud buddy all the time with a custom made 23 hp sticker and I saw them get checked and got away with it. But screw those kids. If there wouldn’t have been 6 of those 18 year old vs two of us 30 year olds I woulda said some smart ass shit

Or, just suck it up and live within the restrictions. We wonder why some want these things banned. Maybe it's because they're so difficult to police the current restrictions since people can't be trusted to do what's right, it's easier just to do away with them altogether...

I’m just gonna go with a 20 hp Honda. I’ve heard they can confiscate your boat if they catch you with a bigger motor. Not taking that chance.

And that's exactly what is happening.
