I seen something going down the road today that got my wheels turning today. It was an Excel boat with a mud motor but it had a steering coloum. My question is I wonder if you could put a mud motor on any steering coloum boat or does it have to be a excel. I have tracker grizzly 17ft with a 40horse four stroke merc side steering coloum. I like my boat but when it come to duck hunting there is only so much you can do with it. If anybody has any info our someone i can call to ask if its possible to jerk my motor off put a mud motor on it and use my steering coloum I would appreciate it. Ive been looking at the mud buddy web page and they have a excel riged out like this with electric tilt/trim. I just dont want to get rid of my boat I love the layout just want to get back to were those green tops hangout.
