I need to get a kicker for a 17' Lund fisherman. I already have a 15 hp short shaft and a 6 horse short shaft. Its my fathers boat but he only uses it for 3 months out of the year (june, July, and August) The other nine months I am gonna take it. Looking for recommendation on mounting the short shaft if it will work or picking up a long shaft (anyone selling one?). Also need to get a bow mount electric, any recommendations as far as #'s of thrust and length?

Thanks in advance,

Ryan

Ryan,
I use a 6hp Evinrude short shaft mounted on a heavy duty Fulton bracket to lower and raise it.
Couldn't mount it on the transom due to shape and cut out.
It's been working fine for 11 years now for jigging and handlining.

I have a 17.75 Lund pro-V and I put a Murcury Big Foot 9.9hp 4-stroke on mine and it was the best investment I have made. I can troll all day for walleyes or salmon and the gas gage doesnt seem to move at all.

The Fulton bracket works great especially if you have short shaft. I have a buddy that uses his 15 hp kicker on a hydro plane. He adds the extension for trolling and removes it for use on the hydro. Ittakes about twenty minutes to swap out. The cost for the extension was about $100.00 twenty years back.

I use a 15 h.p. Mariner short shaft on my 17'8" Princecraft. Works well. Two guys sitting in the back keeps the prop in the water most of the time.

I too am looking for a 8-20 hp kicker. It's been an awesome year, first my gear gets stolen then my Johnson kicker gets swiped on the other boat. I am in desperate need for a motor, any one have one for sale? Can't afford new one, was there today. Thanks.
