Thread: New toy

  1. #1

    New toy

    Price was right- freebie!
    14' with a 9.9hp electric start outboard and a trolling motor.
    Should be plenty to get us back into the best napping spots for me/fishing spots for her!


    can I get my meds in a Princess Leia Pez dispenser please?

    That looks like the boat my dad had when I was a young kid. Except his had a fiberglass hull....I think. I do remember having a Johnson 9.9 hp motor. I always thought it it was funny that they rated it at 9.9 hp. What? They couldn't squeeze out another .1 hp for an even 10? Anyhoo, my dad and uncle would take that thing out fishing in the Atlantic Ocean off of New Jersey. No way in hell could you get me in a dinghy that size and go out in the ocean. The bay was intimidating enough.

    i think the 9.9 is because some places, certain laws kick in at 10hp
    kinda like most mini bikes are 49cc cuz at 50cc laws start to apply

    I think it has do with boat size. Certain boats aren't rated for anything at or higher than 10 hp. Either way, it didn't make sense as a kid.
