Hey all, Im going to be converting to a kicker very very soon. Im running a Long Beach custom 2280 mod-v. She is HEAVY, she has a Suzuki 250 as main motor, has a 112 minn Kota and a total 7 deep cells, and 5 converters, plus big genny. We usually shoot 3-4 guys, plus gear. I like to shoot paddlefish in Montana every summer and I hate racking up the hours on my big motor by using it as my troller, usually around 50 hrs per trip. We usually cruise around 7-8 mph with big motor while we shoot (they are easier to shoot at faster speeds), I would really like to rig up a kicker. What HP Suzuki should I look at to get that kind of speed? Obviously I don't want to have to run the kicker WOT all night either. Im leaning towards a 25 hp EFI Suzuki, is that overkill? Would a 20 hp be sufficient? Anyone have a heavy rig like mine that could chime in on speeds they are getting with their respective kickers, and at what throttle? Im wanting to put on a Power Tran Python electric steer, will it be strong enough to turn the motor at those speed? Thanks a bunch for the help guys.
