Post PPF Wood Duck, backwater, or stump jumper
Looking to buy one of these 3 kits for my 1240 Lowe johnboat in a 6.5 hp kit. Leaning towards the ppf , looks like a solid light weight kit. I have a swamp runner currently. Not a huge fan of it to long of a shaft hard to turn and super heavy. Any advice or recommendations are welcome and would love to hear from the guys who have owned the ppf . Also looking to buy so if anyone has one they are looking to sell pm me please.

Curious if you've adjusted where the motor/kit sits on the main plate? That made a huge difference on my buddy's small and large swamp runner kits. With that said, I know absolutely nothing about PPF, but Backwater makes a very nice kit and are awesome to deal with.

You might want to talk to backwater, They have a new lighter small frame. Maybe lighter than a PPF.

Give Jake a call..

Talked to Jake this morning and he confirmed that they were coming out with a new lighter kit with all the great features blackwater offer. It’s coming out soon. Hopefully in a couple weeks.

Honda GC 160 (not the red GX 160). 55 inch shaft, works best on a 12-15 inch transom. Don't know if it will plane a boat, the Rat it is on is a displacement hull. Will do 7-8 mph though, and goes through mud and muck really well.

I always wanted an air boat but the maintenance is ridiculous on them. Had a buddy who owned one and we were always working on that thing
