Hi Jesse,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for the video.
Starting around the 1 minute 30 second mark, your video has some great footage demonstrating the speed a surface piercing Swamp Runner longtail is capable of. Got yourself a little race horse there, that kinda makes them rich boy longtails look like swamp donkeys. :D


The Congeree is a pretty river. Looks like the water level is up.

Yeah the river was high the other day.. When it comes down its awsome real shallow. And at first i didnt have the camera secured real good. I posted two other vids with the camera located in a different location. seems to b alot better.. And yeah it runs real good. Ive passed many go devils and other engines on the water..

Great video. Have a mv1448 running the 420 also. Not the same results. . Currently using the 8.5. What's the change from the 8.5 to the 9? First mud motor and not a lot of people run them in Wisconsin. Eager to get it in its best shape before the early goose starts.

To P 51

What ive found out from my set up is.. Running the 9 prop is harder to keep in the water but better performance for my boat. What i have to do when im runnin is . I put pressure with my knee on the tiller handle and force it down at times to keep the prop on top of the water. Otherwise it will just break loose and free spin. When i goose it and it gets up on plane i keep the prop pushed down just enough. I guess they call it the sweet spot. But after i get it on top of the water like i want it , its easy to handle and i can pretty much lean left to right and make graduall turns.... Hope this helps.. Jesse

If your having a little trouble keeping the prop in the water get with Mr. Dobbs about the tab that can be welded to the skeg. It helps keep the prop in the water at speed. The trade off is it can collect hydrilla and other forms of aquatic weed but it is easy enough to clear that. I installed it one and it helped with long open water runs, didn't get there with a sore shoulder.

While the hull is fully settled in the water, push down on the tiller handle so that the prop is only half submerged and pushes you slower. I use this method to pass canoeists and kayakers without throwing any wake on them.
