My small tin boat has a 200 hp OptiMax. Its does well for the type fishing I do.
small tin? dang I just saw two tin boats today, one with a 115 and one with a 140 and they both were pretty huge for a jon boat by my standards... big and wide, and they both went as shallow as my skinny 14 ft tin boat.

I think with a 200 horse your boat must be almost as wide as the duck river.

it doesn't get you 25 miles to the gallon though does it? Whatever suits you. I've already gone more than a couple miles today... Fishing for rockfish at the moment, but to say I've caught fish I have already caught two nice carp today, do you want the pics of them? \:\)
Na,dont need to see any pics of carp.Sometimes in life,comfort and usability are more important than how cheap you can get by with.Ive fished in some storms at Dale Hollow,catching fish,and was very glad I was in a Bass Boat,a small john boat would have been very unpleasant.

Dont know about mileage,never seen a boat with an odometer on it,but it does very well.

there's one thing my boat would not do well with, a bad storm... still it serves its purpose well and doesn't cost me much to operate.

Not hardly as wide. It works great on the Duck.I fish Buffalo river too and its smaller than the Duck.
