I have a old sears 16' semi-v that the outboard went out at the end of this season (thank god) and I was going to try a mud motor. Would a long tail or surface drive be better and what hp would I need. Its pretty big with tall sides but its light. I know I wont be able to go to the spots that the flat bottom go but at least I wont have to worry about losing the foot on the outboard if i go with the mud motor.

Older rivet boat may leak if you start running in stumps.

It will work but will SLOW.

Get a 9-23 HP long tail.
