E-Tec on the flats

Hi All,

I have had my little 30HP E-Tec for about 9 months now and it has been nothing short of amazing.  I repowered a Hell's Bay 16 foot Whipray boat and when looking for power, I found that there were few options for me due to excess weight of the new 4 strokes.  The E-Tec not only fit the bill due to the lighter weight but the torque was fantastic.  I fish almost all of southwest Florida for everything from Pompano to 100 lb + tarpon and this engine has performed flawlessly.  With my old power, If I had 3 people in the boat, I needed to use the tabs and lots of room to get on plane.  The E-Tec just jumps right out and goes.  This power plant is also extremely economical to run both on oil and fuel. 

Since repowering I have caught hundreds of snook, tarpon, redfish, trout, macks, snapper, tripletail and many more species. I would recommend this engine to anyone.
