How about my skeeter. It is made in Texas and has a Mariner ( i heard was made by Yamaha) for Mercury. It is clean and shiny like my classic.

Okay so does Skeeter just look pretty and go fast or does it help you catch big fish like @lesblank?? BTW I would love to have another boat but had to get rid of my old one...kids and life happened...B.O.A.T...Bring On Another Thousand... or dry hole in the water where money falls...

Not as big as Les but there are a few parallels. 150 miles off shore - 150 feet off shore. 900 HP - 90HP. Max limit of red fish - Max limit of red sun burn. Long day but relaxing - BEER!

Love me some redfish! Congrats. Hell of a day.

Went for a quick 80 mike ride right before sundown, temperature dropped below 90 degrees so not too bad. This is just west of Houston. Here's a quick video.

Reminds me of very old punchline: I took my baby fishin' and all she got was a red snapper.
