What size kicker should I be looking for? Will a 9.9 push my 18' Jetcraft at all? I can troll all day with the main motor and 2 sea anchors with no problems but can't go slower than maybe 1 mph. Also kinda like the idea of a backup just in case.;)
Thanks, Dan

You want a 1990 6hp evinrude in blue. I happen to have one of those in the garage taking up space....

That will make a good kicker for the 15' open bow I see in your future.:D

9.9 kicker pushes my 19` around. Also, it has gotten me back to the launch a time or two.
