    Flat bottom vs tunnel

    I fish mainly in the upper Potomac. Rocky bottom. Other than there the Susquehanna river but confine myself to deeper water. Had a small Evinrude 48/35 jet, sucked the gas and really didn't give me the performance. Conversely, I had a 30hp Honda prop which ran great but I knocked the skeg off...

    Just swapped a Honda 30hp prop for a Evinrude 48/35 jet

    Whatever it takes. I know it will be thirstier. I just can't go where I want to with a prop motor and can't afford a new engine. These OMC motors are tough and long lasting if taken care of and maintained.
