Re: HP for Power-Row 13 1/2" SB Skiff

:D I like small motors too. however alot of those small ones don't have a reverse gear-they have 360 degree steering instead.I'm not sure how to hook one up remote steering .some of the 6 or bigger ones do have reverse.maybe the guy likes more power for heavier loads,I'm just fishing here. :D
