Ask better questions - get better answers !

Find a dealer willing to take you for a test ride - you decide if you like it and
if he offers the service and support you need to keep it running strong...

Sorry, I have just been looking at all the Mudd Buddy, Boss, Pro Drive, Gatortail, etc. and I was just wondering what everybody liked.

You should also consider the dealership selling it as a big part of your decision...

Not to mention - budget...

As to what we like - most like what they currently own...

I like GoDevil - because of their service - the fact that the hulls have USCG floatation - that
the hulls are optimized for their motors - because where I run we have to run over hard sand
and the longer outdrive is an asset - we have to climb over logs and the balanced frame is
an asset - and they are simple with less things to go wrong....

Worst mistake most to make is just slapping brand X motor on brand Z hull - they work best
as a matched set... Unlike outboards each MM is optimized for a different transom angle - a
different transom trailing edge design - etc etc etc.... I makes a huge difference what type
terrain you need to overcome...


Test drive in the area you want to use it - before you buy - or like many you will be unsatisfied
and sell it at a loss a year later....

Somewhere around the 18x48 size hull with a 35 to 40 HP - is a good place to start...

Isn't Boss out of business now??

If you want instant reverse, then you're down to MB and GT. Full power reverse Pro Drive.

I personally don't like MB after the Sport H fiasco (but that's based on my experience).
