Boat Preped for a trip December 26th.to Kenosha Harbor my last trip of 2015. I had a guy ask me at the ramp why I run a kicker if E Tec;s can idle all day and troll wothout fouling? My answer was I do troll woth mt E TEC I use the kicker for lakes with hp restrictions 10 hp or less. It also stays on the boat for safty when on the Big Lake. If for some reason the big motor had an issue or maybe I bang the prop I can still get my boat in Safe. Safety is Important when you have clients out.
