Post Backwatwer Swomp Lite 40
Ordered and sent off my check , For a new Swomp lite 40 Frame. Its going on a clean 16 x 44 Go Devil Hull. Short transom Model. This will be the second Backwater longtail in our arsenal .
For the area this rig will be used, hard sandy bottoms in the central Texas area, I felt it would be the best option. Once it gets here and I mount it, I will review and post some pics. Something about these GoDevil Hulls, with a backwater longtail that just appeals to me.

Huck, please post up some pictures and stats when you get this up and running. Looking at a similar setup and want to know speeds with 2 guys and gear. Thanks, can't wait to hear how she runs.

Dang! I envy that. I love my 26.5 EFI on my grizzly 1648....would love a true flat hull of course! Any suggestions for a new or used purchase? My wife might better understand a new hull- my motor is only on its third season. :mrgreen:

I but a 40 BW on a 1844 Go-Devil and was very happy, mid to high 20's empty.
With a big load (3 fat ass guys, dog , blind, decoys, bucket seats etc..) I will still run 20.

17.5x48 I hit 27 before it was broken in. Running low to mid 20's with hunt loads. Very happy with my 40

Weather up here has been a bastard and I hear they are calling for another foot tomorrow.

Better work on your patience some more.

So, Huck, have you run the 40 yet? I know the weather has been mostly brutal but hoping you had a maiden voyage?

It is mounted! , Ran it a few times ,Dialing the cav plate in. One shim, fat towards the prop, in the back holes. Runs like a scalded dog. No speeds on gps, Not really worried. It was powerful, and worked great in the locale it will be hunted. I expect it to run even better as its broken in.

Congratulations! Here it is, spring turkey season, and I can't help thinking about the upcoming duck season and the purr of the Backwater in the marsh!
