Not sure what the deal was, but I couldn't post reply to the original thread topic!!
They run these lower units on their boats to make them safer to drive. Once you get in the upper 80's mph range, there is very little boat and motor in the water, and the prop can actually pick the boat up out of the water and cause a "blow out". Which is NOT fun! You ask the question, "I don't have a clue why they would want them for fishing boats on the Tennessee River.", well, alot of people might not believe this but, we have "Bass Boats" that are running over 100 mph, loaded to fish. They are very few and far between, but they are out there. I can't answer you as to why!! LOL, all I can say is it's fun, and we all have some sort of "racer" in us, or Hot Rodder in us. I wasn't one of the ones over there, but I do have a Bullet myself. I reckon I might be one of the sinners,......but it sure is fun! And I do enjoy fishing!
