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 $$$."
