What our customers are saying:
Clint F -- "I want to say I'm glad I didn't believe the hype and go with the s*s company although I'm from Florida, now in Texas.
I purchased your longtail 7 hp kit and although I customized it it's awesome.
No one has ever seen the like round here. I'm a commercial fisherman and I use this motor to collect and sell marsh baits.
Thank you mudskipper for saving me $$$."
Jeff C - "Just purchased your long tail mud motor and love it. I will be ordering the z bent steering arm for it soon. I stand while operating the boat and it will make the motor complete. Thanks again guys good job"

I have been eyeballing the longtail kits for a couple of years now and finally pulled the trigger. Great kit, the parts are all finished nicely and go together easily. The kit is solid built and seems it will last a lifetime. I am really enjoying my new long tail motor. I paired the kit with a harbor freight 212cc 6.5hp predator motor and it is awesome. If i had to make a complaint it would be the instructions but with a little thought and a couple of beers we were able to assemble everything and have it running in about an hour.
Great customer service, great price, great product.

John reccomended this kit for my 14 ft Lancer fiberglass jon boat. Comes with two props 6.25 and 6.50. I tried both. The 6.25 gave me 2800-3000 rps on the 7 hp motor and 5.5 to 5.8 mph in very heavy grass and vegetation on the Wacissa River in N. Florida. Get about 2.5 -3 hrs. run time on a tank of gas in these conditions. Kit is well built and will last many years. Got electric start because I'm 70 years old and didn't want to be pulling on a start rope.
Did I mention great customer service. John was great with advice on additional purchases.
