I have 10 foot mirrocraft with an 8 horsepower johnson engine from the mid-70's. I also have a 5 HP trolling motor and a canoe. Both are located on my lake at my lakehouse.

Oh ya, we have 2 kayaks too.

Those Verado outboards are intense. There was a Fountain factory fishing team in Weymouth Ma a month or so ago that had a boat with triple 275hp Verado's on it. I was checking out the boat and was standing right next to the outboards and couldn't even tell they were running, unbelivable! Bet those things are great on fuel too.

I've heard they pound a lot, but are setup perfect for the types of fishing I do. The 25's with the dual stations look like a perfect setup, just need to find someone to bring me out in some nasty weather for a sea trial.

Every pot has a cover ,my grandfather said. There are a lot of good boats on the market today. It depends on the type of fishing you do.
