    im about to get a boat and wondering I’m definetly getting a GTRXD 37 EFI! Unless someone says another mud motor is better! But should I go with havoc or edge? If so why and what model.
     
  2. If you’re dead set on a surface drive and are going to put it through its paces, my best advice is to buy a boat that was designed to have one hanging on the back of it.

    I have an excel with a mud buddy. Had it 4 years. It works but there is better built hulls for these motors.

    I’ve had both. Currently have an edge with an outboard and hope to very soon be going back to the havoc. I personally feel like it’s a more durable built boat. And the customer service is the best I’ve ever seen.

    Specking of customer service, I bought a used havoc last year and was having issues with porpoising at lower speeds. I played with the motor height and a few different props. I figured out that the original wedges (I believe that is what they are called...the welds) had been filed down to get a little more speed by the previous owner. To make a long story a little shorter, I don't do Facebook, so a buddy of mine messaged Tim directly to get is option on what he would do to help with the porpoising. He replied back, on a weekend, it could be motor height or needed the welded wedges added back. He said that if I wanted to bring it to him he would add them back for free. I was really impressed that he would take time to reply like that and to offer to do that work for free....I am a fan!
